CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office wants to help keep your identity safe.
The HCSO will host its annual "Shred It" event for Hamilton County residents this Saturday.
Residents can bring personal documents to be destroyed to the Sheriff's West Annex located at 6233 Dayton Boulevard from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.
The Sheriff's Office says this service is to enable residents to safely destroy documents and lower the possibility of becoming a victim of identity theft. If needed, residents can watch their papers destroyed and shredded while they wait.
The Sheriff's Office says that while this event is open to residents to shred personal documents, business will not be able to bring their documents to be shredded.
Chattanooga firefighters battled a house fire on the 100 block of Centro Street early Wednesday morning.More
