Pima County Sheriff's Department hosts shred-a-thon event | Events
Identity theft is a crime that affects many lives. The Pima County Sheriff’s Department is hosting another shred-a-thon event this weekend.
According to the Federal Trade Commission: “To thwart an identity thief who may pick through your trash or recycling bins to capture your personal information, always shred your charge receipts, copies of credit applications, insurance forms, physician statements, checks and bank statements, expired charge cards that you're discarding, and credit offers you get in the mail.”
Many people do not have the time or machinery to shred documents like this, so that is where PCSD steps in with its ‘shred-a-thon’ events. The next event is at the following time and location:
WHEN: October 20 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. (event may end early if the trucks fill to capacity before 11 a.m.)
WHERE: The parking lot of Empire High School (10701 E. Mary Ann Cleveland Way, Tucson 85747
The public is encouraged to participate, by bringing their out-dated personal documents and records to be shredded. Documents from businesses will NOT be accepted.
This is a drive-through shredding service; an attendant will go to the car and transfer all documents to a bin for shredding.
