VICTORIA, Texas – The Victoria Police Department teamed up with Prosperity Bank to offer their free event, ‘Shred-It’.
This was an opportunity for anyone who wanted to dispose of any important or confidential documents to do so in a safe manner. With many burn bans in effect, John Zacek with Prosperity Bank says that events like the one today is a great way for people to protect themselves against fraud.

“The aged population are the people that are oftentimes targeted with identity theft and in fraud that happens in and while this isn’t just for them matter of fact, a lot of the people who’ve been here are very young people that have come to say, you know, ‘I just need to get rid of this confidential information,”.

Victoria Police Chief Arredondo and Zacek agreed that the Shred-It event had such a great turnout they hope to bring it back next year.
