The Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office has obtained a MEdReturn drug collection unit. Citizens looking to dispose of excess and expired prescription and over-the-counter- medications can now visit the safe and secure permanent drop off location in the south hall of the courthouse. Properly disposing of excess drugs is everyone's responsibility as a matter of public safety. More than 70 percent of the young people abusing prescription pain releivers get them through friends and family, a statistic that includes raiding the family medicine cabinet. Now Cheyenne County citizens won't have to wait for a specific take-back day to clean out their medicine cabinets. Keep prescription medication away from our children and out of our water supply.


Caution!  Harvestseason is upon us which means you are likely to encounter large, slow moving equipment on the roadways.  Please use caution when meeting or passing equipment, especially on county roads!
