HCSO TO HELP SHRED UNWANTED PERSONAL DOCUMENTS  

HOUSTON, Texas – 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.
