Tallahassee, Florida --

This Saturday, from 9:00AM until Noon, the Tallahassee Police Department and Shred-it, a local document shredding company, will join forces to reduce the potential for identity theft in the Capital City. Identity theft and financial crimes are an ever-increasing issue facing law enforcement and the public. Identity theft is usually perpetrated to facilitate other crimes, such as credit card fraud or check fraud. The thief is cunning and uses a variety of methods to obtain the victims personal information, such as rummaging through discarded trash that may contain a social security number or other information. The more brazen criminals will commit a home or vehicle burglary to obtain personal information to facilitate a wide variety of fraud.

Additionally, The Tallahassee Police Department and Shred-it will help fight hunger! Citizens are encouraged to bring a canned food and it will be donated to ECHO (Emergency Care Help Organization).
