In mid-April of 2020, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and Toledo Police Department partnered to begin a no-fee medication delivery service for vulnerable populations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program was well utilized by Lincoln County residents, with deputies or officers making several deliveries per day during its height. After 10 months of operation, the program was utilized for 152 deliveries. Local pharmacies and private delivery services have done an excellent job reaching vulnerable populations for medication. Both the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and Toledo Police Department have concluded the program as more services are accessible to community members at this time.
