Police to host hard drive destruction day

The Henrico Police Division has partnered with The Central Virginia Chapter of the Virginia Crime Prevention Association (CVCPA), Shred-it, and other metro law enforcement agencies to offer a free, hard drive destruction program on Wednesday, Sept. 12 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 4470 Cox Rd., in the Highwoods Plaza parking lot.

There is a limit of one personal hard drive per person. No computer equipment will be accepted.

Erasing data from your hard drive does not destroy it. Hackers and identity thieves can use other software to recover your personal information to steal your identity.

Each hard drive will be physically shredded on-site into minute particles, which Shred-it will then securely dispose of.

For more information, call Crystal Delk at 501-5316.
