HCSO TO HELP SHRED UNWANTED PERSONAL DOCUMENTS

HOUSTON – The Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) is once again teaming up with Shred-It to help citizens permanently destroy old or unwanted personal documents.

Folks interested in participating in the effort to help prevent identity theft can bring their old documents to have them shredded. The HCSO, in collaboration with Shred-It, will provide this service free of charge on Saturday, March 26 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Harris County Court Annex located at 7900 Will Clayton Parkway in Humble. 

Identity theft has become one of the costliest crimes in the nation. In addition to helping prevent thieves from physically getting their hands on the discarded personal and confidential information of others, Shred-It also helps by heightening general public awareness on how to avoid becoming a victim of identity theft.  

This is the HCSO’s first Shred-It event of the year. About 5-10 thousand pounds of documents are shredded at each event.



Remember 9/11
