Event Description

On Saturday, January 25, 2014, the Boca Raton Police Services Department and Microshred Corporation are partnering to host a free shredding event. The event will take place from 9 am to 12 pm at the Town Center Mall, 6000 West Glades Road, in the northwest corner of the Sears parking lot. The event is only open to residential households with a maximum of five banker’s sized boxes per household.  Microshred will have document shredding trucks on site and for a fee of $10, they will destroy your computer hard drive(s). The hard drive must be removed from the computer prior to arrival.


BRPD’s Crime Prevention Unit along with employees from Microshred, will be on site to provide tips for identity theft prevention. Shredding documents is a key step in identity theft prevention. “In 2013, 7.0% of households in the United States, or about 8.6 million households, had at least one resident, age 12 or older, who experienced one or more types of identity theft victimization” (U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics Crime Data Brief November 2013).Residents are encouraged to purchase a quality cross cut shredder and to shred all documents that contain any personal information.For more information, callthe Boca Raton Police Department Crime Prevention Unit at 561-347-3938 or visit our website at
