Narrative:

On Saturday, February 3rd, the Camarillo Police Explorers and Access will host a secure paper-shredding event at the Camarillo Community Center, at 1605 Burnley Street, from 8 am till 12 noon.

This event is open to all Camarillo residents and businesses. Participants will enter the parking lot from Burnley and will be directed to the desired drop-off location. A $5.00 donation (cash) per vehicle would be greatly appreciated. All Proceeds will benefit the Camarillo Police Explorer program.

Discarding confidential personal information in your household trash is a risky practice that makes you susceptible to identity theft. Documents containing Social Security numbers and other identifying information- including credit card statements, applications, receipts, medical records, bank statements, tax and other legal documents-should all be shredded instead. Access will shred documents with a per-customer maximum of 10 boxes (15'X12"X9") or 10 grocery bags of documents. Once the shred trucks are filled, the collection and event will STOP.

Explorers are local youth between 14 and 20 years of age. These youth have displayed a desire to pursue law enforcement as a potential career opportunity. The explorers all have high ethical principles and are enthusiastic to support their community. They take part in weekly Post meetings, assist with civic and community events, perform parking service and traffic control duties at local events, participate in scenario based strategic trainings, and attend tactical competitions.
