Identity theft and fraud crimes are on the rise. The City of Broken Arrow wants to help residents avoid becoming victims of identity theft and fraud by keeping personal information away from the hands of thieves. One of the methods identity thieves use to steal information is combing through recycling and garbage for sensitive information that has been thrown away.
The Broken Arrow Police Department recommends and encourages citizens to use a shredder (preferably cross-cut) for sensitive documents, such as credit card statements, financial statements, pre-approved credit card offers, old IRS tax forms, bank checks, household bills, etc.
To help residents safely dispose of these documents, BAPD and American Document Shredding are holding a free shredding event during the Broken Arrow Senior Resource Fair, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., Friday, April 26 at the Central Park Community Center, 1500 S. Main St. The shredding will be in the main parking lot on the west side of the building.
