Reminder--Community Shred Day is this Saturday at LP Field
October 9, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A reminder that the second of this year’s biannual Community Shred Days is set for this Saturday from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at LP Field.
Middle Tennesseans are welcome to bring all of their sensitive documents they no longer want or need to Lot D of the stadium, where the paper will be destroyed on the spot by a mobile high-speed cross shredder provided by Shred-it, a Securit Company, the world’s leading on-site document destruction firm. The only cost is a minimum $5 tax deductible donation to Crime Stoppers per banker box of records. All proceeds go to Crime Stoppers’ reward fund, which is used to help solve serious felony crimes in the Nashville community.
Detectives from the police department’s Fraud Unit will be on hand to pass out tips on identity theft prevention and to answer any questions from citizens.
Included on the same site will be Crime Stoppers’ Pharma Trash Disposal. Metro police officers will collect prescription medications that are outdated and/or no longer needed and dispose of them in an environmentally safe manner. This program provides consumers with an alternative to improperly disposing of medications in household trash or down the toilet.
Auto Theft detectives will also be on hand Saturday offering VIN etching for a minimum $10 donation to Crime Stoppers. VIN etching involves the use of acid to etch small vehicle identification numbers into every window of the vehicle and is a deterrent to theft.
