Cybersecurity is top of mind these days, so if you’re determined to keep your personal data secure, the Dallas Police Department and the Lake Highlands Public Improvement District are ready to help. They’ll host a free document shredding event Saturday, April 13.

You may drive through and drop off up to two file boxfuls and have them professionally shredded. Permitted documents include old bills, bank statements, canceled checks, medical records, resumes, photos, junk mail, magazines and travel documents. They will not accept ring binders, cardboard, books, plastic, x-rays, batteries, combustible items, cell phones, key fobs, remote controls, electronics, cables, computers, syringes, glass, cans, cardboard tubes, ink/toner cartridges, nut & bolts, trash, food or soiled paper.

Luckily, you don’t need to remove staples, paper clips, metal strips on hanging files, manilla folders, paper board legal binders, spiral notebooks or thin plastic sheet protectors – they’ll take care of all of that.

The Safe Shred event takes place at the Lake Highlands North Recreation Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 13.
