'Time-delayed' safes installed at CVS stores in Kentucky to curb opioid robberies
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- CVS Pharmacy has a new tool against opioid related robberies in Kentucky.
The company says all 77 CVS Pharmacies in Kentucky now have time-delayed narcotic safes. That means the safes don't open right away after a pharmacist punches in the code.
CVS first put the safes in locations in Indianapolis in 2015. Since then, the company said there has been a 70 percent decrease in robbery attempts at those locations.
Next time you're in a CVS or go through the drive-thru, you'll see new time delayed safe signs.
