To participate, residents can call GCSO between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday to arrange the delivery. Then, residents call their pharmacy and inform staff that GCSO will be picking up the prescription. Residents should pre-pay for the medication.

A deputy will pick up the prescription and bring it to the resident’s home, where the resident will be asked to provide a photo ID.
