NASHVILLE, Tenn. - If you're looking for ways to protect yourself from identity theft you may want to make a trip to LP Field. On Saturday, Nashville is having its biannual Shred-it day. You can get rid of old papers and old prescription drugs.
The federal government estimates up to ten million Americans fall victim to identity theft every year. Police said it's important that you protect vital information about yourself. If you don't protect it, get rid of it.
Metro Police, Crime Stoppers and Shred-it are teaming up to sponsor Nashville's Community Shred Day at the stadium.
Several Shred-it trucks will be in the parking lots at LP Field from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.
The cost is a $5 tax deductible donation to Crime Stoppers for every banker box of records. There will also be a place where you can drop off old or no longer needed prescription drugs.
The Crime Stoppers program is funded through private donations and not tax dollars. In almost 30 years, 8,400 criminals have been arrested in Nashville after an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers.
The Shred Day held in April raised $8,700 for the Crime Stoppers program.
