Nature of Incident: Shred Event
Location: Nordhoff High School Parking Lot, 1401 Maricopa Highway, Ojai

Date & Time: 04/27/19 @ 09:00- 11:00 AM

Unit(s) Responsible: Ojai Police Department Explorer Post

Narrative: Don’t be a victim of Identity Theft!
On Saturday, April 27th, the Ojai Police and Sheriff Explorers along with Confidential Data Destruction Company (CDDC) will host a secure paper-shredding event at the Nordhoff High School parking lot, at 1401 Maricopa Highway, from 9 am until 11 am.
This event is open to all Ojai residents. Participants will enter the parking lot from Maricopa Highway and will be directed to the desired drop-off location. A $5.00 donation (cash) per box would be greatly appreciated. All proceeds will benefit the Ojai Sheriff and Police Explorer program.
Discarding confidential personal information in your household trash is a risky practice that makes you susceptible to identity theft. Documents containing Social Security numbers and other identifying information, including credit card statements, applications, receipts, medical records, bank statements, tax and other legal documents should all be shredded. CDDC will shred documents with a per-customer maximum of 4 “banker boxes” (15”x12”x10”) or 4 grocery bags of documents. Once the shred trucks are filled, the collection and event will STOP. Please remove all plastic folders, clips, or metal bindings before disposing your items.
Explorers are local youth between 14 and 20 years of age. These youth have displayed a desire to pursue law enforcement as a potential career opportunity. The explorers all have high ethical principles and are enthusiastic to support their community. They take part in weekly post meetings, assist with civic and community events, perform parking service and traffic control duties at local events, participate in scenario-based strategic training, and attend tactical competitions.
