Walgreens pharmacies have a new tool in place to combat robberies of narcotics and to increase safety. They are called “time delay safes” and they are being installed throughout the state. Once the lock is activated by a pharmacist the safe is designed to remain locked for several minutes. Police say the program has been successful in other states and would help reduce drug thefts in stores.

“We’re confident this is going to reduce people’s intention of coming to a pharmacy to legally take drugs.”
The safes could eventually be expanded to other drug stores in the future.
