Time-delay safes have been installed all 77 CVS Pharmacy locations in Kentucky, the company announced. The safes help deter thefts of controlled substance medications by electronically delaying the time it takes for pharmacy employees to be able to open the safes. CVS Pharmacy first implemented time-delay safes in Indianapolis in 2015, which led to a 70% decline in pharmacy thefts at those locations. All CVS Pharmacy locations with time-delay safes display prominent signage to inform the public that such safes are in use. CVS Health has also installed nine safe-medication disposal units in CVS stores in Kentucky. Nationwide, 750 safe-medication disposal units have been installed in CVS Pharmacy locations, and the company has committed to installing an additional 1,100 units in 2019.
