Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana is looking to make Community Shred Day the “worst kept secret in town.” To participate, bring your sensitive information to one of two Indianapolis locations: The Speedway Police Headquarters, 1401 N. Lynhurst Dr., or WTHR, 1000 N. Meridian St., on April 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Not only will this day be an opportunity for you to protect yourself from identity theft, it will also offer you entertainment by watching the Shred-It® high-speed, mobile, cross-shredder in action. All shredded material will be recycled. Law enforcement officials will also be on site to collect prescription medications that you no longer need in an attempt to cut down on the risk of abuse or accidental ingestion by children.
Crime Stoppers is asking for a $5 per box donation for material brought to the event, which will go towards benefiting the non-profit. For more information, call (317) 481-5155 or visit crimetips.org.
