NEXT DATE:
Saturday, October 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This program is a partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and cities to allow residents to bring expired, unused, or unwanted over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription (Rx) drugs, veterinary medicines, samples, vitamins, and herbal supplements for safe disposal — no questions asked.

Residents are asked to remove all personal information from items. These items are not accepted: illegal drugs, oxygen tanks, needles and other sharps, inhalers, thermometers, nebulizers, and IV bags.

Mansfield/Kennedale Emergency Communications Center
In 2013 Kennedale and Mansfield combined resources to create south Tarrant County’s first regional dispatch center.

The Mansfield/Kennedale Emergency Communications Center is staffed with six radio dispatch stations with capability for future expansion. While staffing numbers vary according to shifts, there is always an adequate number of personnel on duty to handle major events as well handle other traffic and to provide relief to other employees.

Contact numbers for dispatch remain the same. For all emergencies, dial 9-1-1. For non-emergency calls, or to have and officer contact you to answer a question, call 817-478-5416. Please do not call the 817-985-2160 number for an officer to respond to a problem. That number, and the attached phone tree, is for administrative calls only.

Another advantage of this merger was to allow Kennedale to cease operations of its jail facility. The city now utilizes Mansfield’s jail, which has a full-time staff of jailers, city marshals, and medical personnel, and a full-time bond desk. Prisoners are monitored constantly and have access to resources that the Kennedale jail was too small to provide.

In addition, It took on average one hour or more to process an arrest when Kennedale operated its own jail, which did not have a jail staff. All arrest paperwork duties were handled by the arresting officer. At the Mansfield facility with its full-time staff it takes less than half that, which means more time on patrol for Kennedale officers and better protection for our citizens.
