To help protect citizens from identity theft, the AARP Louisiana Fraud Watch Network and the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office are teaming up to provide a safe location to shred your personal documents free of charge.
The drive-through, contactless shred event will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Saturday, April 9, at Sheriff’s Safety Town, 8910 Jewella Avenue in Shreveport. Attendees can bring unwanted documents containing sensitive information and have them destroyed on-site by a professional shredding company. And there’s no need to get out of the car.
Each car is limited to three bags/boxes. Suggested items include old tax documents, canceled or unused checks, credit cards, medical bills, investment account statements, and other items containing sensitive information.
This event is free and open to the public; however, pre-registration is required so that we can manage capacity. To register online visit: https://aarp.cventevents.com/FreeShreddingShreveport
