BOCA RATON, Fla.– Identity theft remains a growing issue nationwide and here in South Florida. Experts say the reality is… you are never 100 percent safe from thieves.
But there is one major thing you can do to protect yourself–and that’s shredding important documents. The Boca Raton Police Department is teaming up with a company out of Miami called MicroShred. They are hosting a free shredding day this Saturday, January 26th for the public to bring up to five bankers sized boxes to shred.
The company will bring their dump truck sized shredder and will even destroy computer hard drives as well. Pieces of paper like credit card statements and other bills hold important and private information that needs to be destroyed properly to protect yourself.
