Lethbridge: In an on-going effort to curtail fraud, Regional Police have partnered with the Alberta Motor Association on a document shredding day.
The event takes place Saturday from 10:00-am until 3:00-pm at AMA Lethbridge Centre at 120 Scenic Drive South. It's open to private citizens only and you're allowed 6-boxes of documents per person. Old documents you should be shredding include bank statements, credit card and utility bills, store receipts or anything that contains personal information.
There's no cost for this service. However, donations for local food banks would be appreciated. Regional Police and AMA representatives will be on hand with information on how to prevent identity theft and fraud-related crimes.
This event is held as part of Fraud Prevention Month and takes place every March. Last year, the service shredded almost 9.5 tonnes of documents and 975-pounds of food were collected for local food banks.
