Rimbey RCMP take pro-active approach

Operation ‘shred it’ coming up

Rimbey RCMP have taken a hands-on approach to helping people deal with fraud.

As part of a Crime/Fraud prevention initiative the RCMP, in partnership with Victim Service and ATB Financial, are inviting the public to take part in Operation Shred It.

Operation Shred It will take place on Aug. 28 between 10 a.m. and noon at the parking lot of the Rimbey RCMP. During this time, the public is invited to bring their personal documents in so they can be shredded.

“We want to educate people about proper disposal of their documents,” said Cst. Audrey Bernier.

The constable said the public needs to be aware of the importance of disposing of personal documents. She said often these documents are stolen during break and enters and once the perpetrators have access to the documents, fraud can result.

Cst. Bernier and a representative from ATB and Victim Services will be on hand.

“It’s a good way to gather information about fraud prevention and also a good occasion to have a Coffee with a Cop,” said Bernier.
