  • Shred Event at City Hall

Tigard Police Department

Free Document Shredding

Periodically, the Tigard Police Department, in partnership with Pride Recycling, offers free document shredding for the community. Typically the events are offered on a Saturday morning and conducted in the parking lot of Tigard City Hall.

Law enforcement strongly encourages residents and businesses to shred paperwork containing personal and sensitive information to reduce the risk of identity theft. 

Next Shred Event: 

There are no plans to schedule a shred event in early 2021 due to COVID-19. This event typically involves a lot of attendees and volunteers, working in close proximity, which makes hosting one difficult during this time. In upcoming months, we will evaluate whether we can offer a shred event in summer or fall of 2021.

Identity Theft a National Problem
The most recent data from the U.S. Bureau of Justice Services indicate that there were 17.6 million victims of identity theft in 2014 alone. Two-thirds of those harmed suffered a financial loss.

The victims include Tigard residents, who have filed reports with the Tigard Police Department.

The department recommends residents follow Federal Trade Commission guidelines to safeguard one’s personal information:

  • Know who you share information with.
  • Store and dispose of your personal information securely, especially your Social Security number and birthdate.
  • Ask questions before sharing your personal information.
  • Make sure your computers and other electronic devices are secure.
