During the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Coldwater Police Department will assist elderly patients who may not have transportation or who may be fearful of going out in public by picking up and delivering their prescription drugs for them. Patients that qualify need only contact their pharmacist and ask to be signed up for this service.
In order to take advantage of this service, patients must meet these requirements:
Patients must live within the City of Coldwater.
Patients must be 65-years-old or older to participate.
Pharmacies may recommend additional patients they believe need help on a case by case basis.
Patients must pay for their prescription (debit card, credit card or insurance card) over the phone or online before the pharmacy will release the prescription to the police for delivery.
If a pharmacist is not certain if a particular address is within the City of Coldwater, they may call us at 278-4525 to verify the address.
The pharmacist should complete the tracking/inventory form to let us know the name, address, and phone number of the patient, and what we are delivering.
The officer will show the pharmacist their police ID, and will sign the tracking/inventory form to document that the officer has received the specified drugs. The officer will then deliver the prescriptions to the patient and have the patient sign the tracking/inventory form to document they have received their medicine.
Please call us before noon at 278-4525 to schedule the day’s deliveries. We will pick up the medications around 1 p.m. and take them to the patients.
