On Saturday, September 30, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., the Rocklin Police Department, the Placer Valley Sunrise Rotary Club and the Shred-it Corporation are teaming up to allow Rocklin residents and business persons to shred their personal documents.

Identity thieves often “dumpster dive” or dig through garbage to find personal information they can use to make phony checks or apply for credit. The National Crime Prevention Council recommends shredding all financial documents, billing statements, pre-approved credit card offers and any other papers containing personal information and identification numbers before discarding them.
There is no need to remove paper clips, staples, or file folders. You will be able to witness your documents being shredded.
The Rocklin Police Department invites and encourages community members to take advantage of this opportunity to shred personal documents at no charge. For more information about the event, call the Rocklin Police Department’s Crime Prevention Coordinator, Wendy Smith at (916) 625-5440.
