The Arvada Police invites residents to protect their identity and personal information by taking part in the Annual Shred-A-Thon to safely destroy documents containing personal information. Resident and businesses can bring up to three boxes or three bags of documents. The event is free, but donations are welcomed. Proceeds from the Shred-A-Thon will benefit the W.Michael Northey Foundation, which provides scholarships to local high school students who want to pursue a higher education degree. Area high school students and Arvada Police Explorers will be on hand to assist with unloading items.
