Identity theft - Annual community document shred
Identity theft remains a concern anywhere you live. Especially this time of year because of income tax season. The Hesston Police Department has investigated numerous cases of identity theft or attempted identity fraud through the past couple of years. Everything from someone using a citizen’s identity to file a fraudulent tax return to mail being stolen out of mailboxes. In an effort to raise community awareness of identity theft, the Hesston Police Department and the Hesston Lion’s Club have partnered to bring a Shred-It truck to town for use by our citizens. The truck will be at the Hesston Police Department, 444 N. Lancaster, from 9:00a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 3rd.
Hesston citizens and businesses are encouraged to bring documents such as receipts, payroll stubs, utility bills, credit card statements, duplicate checks, any financial records, tax records or any records with personal information to the Hesston Police Department to have them properly destroyed by Shred-It of Wichita. You don’t have to sort paper or remove paper clips or staples. However, paper will need to be removed from any binders. All confetti-sized paper by-products will be recycled.
This service is being provided to the citizens of Hesston at no charge. We will also be accepting nonperishable food items by donation. All donations will be delivered to the Hesston Resource Center.
