Duluth has a needle problem

The Duluth Police Department had a reasonable request on its Facebook page today: Please stop throwing your used hypodermic needles away in a city park neighborhood.

This photo was sent to our department Facebook page of garbage and needles thrown on the ground in Morgan Park area. This is very disturbing. The person who came across this ask, that we please remind people to dispose of garbage and needles the right way without endangering children in these neighborhoods. Duluth Police is also asking to take responsibility and have enough respect to dispose of trash and needles so children, pets and others are not harmed. Thank you.
