[ARCHIVED] Police Reschedule Shred-A-Thon

James City County Police Department patrol vehicle

Due to forecast inclement weather, the Shred-A-Thon originally scheduled for May 19 has been postponed to July 28. This event will be held at the Williamsburg/James City County Courthouse at 5201 Monticello Avenue, Williamsburg, 8:30-11:30 a.m. 

An estimated $16 billion was stolen from 15.4 million U.S. consumers in 2016 in incidents involving identity theft, according to the 2017 Identity Fraud Study released by Javelin Strategy & Research. One of the most successful ways of preventing identity theft is by shredding documents that contain personal information thieves use.

The first grocery bag of documents will be shredded at no charge and each additional bag will be $5. Citizens are invited to bring up to 10 paper or plastic grocery bags or 5 file boxes of documents to be shredded. Computer disks, binders, laminated paper and other non-paper materials should be removed from boxes prior to the event. Staples, rubber bands and paper clips do not need to be removed. The event is set up like a drive-thru with stop-and-go service; volunteers will be available to assist with unloading boxes. Shredding will be done on site.
