24/7 MEDICINE DROP BOX INSTALLED AT POLICE HQ
|5/8/15 - The Maywood Police Department recently installed a prescription medicine drop box in the lobby of Police Headquarters. The drop box, donated by CVS Pharmacy, is available to the public 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Residents can drop off any unwanted or unused prescription medication. Please note that liquids and syringes (sharps) cannot be accepted. A special thank you to Sgt. Mary Tutschek for overseeing the installation of the drop box.
DON'T FLUSH YOUR MEDICATION: A recent study shows that 80 percent of US streams contain small amounts of human medicines. Sewage systems cannot remove these medicines from water that is released into lakes, rivers or oceans. Fish and other aquatic animals have shown adverse effects from medicines in the water. And, even very small amounts of medicine have been found in drinking water.

for information relative to two early
morning fires that have been determined to
be intentionally set (arson).
On Sunday, March, 2, 2014 at approximately
5:30 a.m., the Maywood Police Department
received a 911 call reporting an explosion
and fire in a detached garage of an
apartment complex located at 5 Hammell
Place, Maywood. The Maywood Police and Fire
Departments responded to the scene and began
extinguishing the fire. The explosion heard

the fire, not the cause of it. It was
determined that an unknown person(s)
intentionally lit the fire, which then
caused several containers kept in the garage
While fighting the fire on Hammell Place,
they received a fire alarm at 8 Windsor

responded and found a fire in the garage
underneath the apartment building of 8
Windsor Court. The fire consumed one vehicle
and caused damage to others. The fire was
extinguished and no injuries were reported.
It should be noted that the apartment
building above the garage was occupied with
numerous tenants at the time of the fire and
the possibility of injury and/or death
