Police hosting Shred-A-Thon

NORMAN — The Norman Police Department is hosting four events from 9 a.m. to noon May 18 at 201-B West Gray St., directly south of Andrew’s Park.

The first event is a Shred-A-Thon in partnership with Absolute Data Shredding and Republic Bank and Trust. Disposing of documents by shredding will reduce resident’s chances of becoming victims of identity theft by keeping sensitive information out of the hands of criminals. Each resident can bring up to five boxes of items to shred at no charge and watch its destruction.

The Pharmaceutical Take-Back Program in partnership with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs allows residents to properly dispose of unused and unneeded prescription drugs in an environmentally responsible way. Please do not bring syringes, liquids or inhalers.

Residents also may drop off old or unwanted ammunition. The only restriction is no explosives.

The fourth event, which will be held on the west side of the police department, is a Car Seat Check-Up Event in partnership with Safe Kids Oklahoma. A limited number of seats will be available for $10 to eligible families. In order to receive a seat, individuals must arrive in a vehicle with the child present and with documentation of state aid. Individuals that are expectant, will need to be within six weeks of the due date.

For more information, call Sgt. Jennifer Newell at 366-5267 or MPO Teddy Wilson at 366-5438.
