Law enforcement strongly encourages residents and businesses to cross-shred paperwork containing personal and sensitive information to reduce the risk of identity theft. To make it easier for residents to shred sensitive documents, the Tigard Police Department typically holds an annual Shred Event.
An event planned for September 2021 has been postponed. We require around 10-15 volunteers to make this event happen, including police cadets who are teenagers. Even though the event will be held outside, we have decided to postpone the event out of an abundance of caution for volunteers given the recent increase in COVID cases and transmissibility of the variant.
