NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Identity theft is one of the most serious and fastest-growing white-collar crimes in the United States, a fact which much of the population remains blissfully ignorant of. Additionally, even those who do grasp the seriousness of identity theft do not fully comprehend its frequency, opting instead to view themselves as somehow immune to such criminal activity.
Unfortunately this attitude causes many individuals to overlook the necessity of security measures such as effective document shredding or complete hard drive destruction. This lack of security consciousness is one of the primary reasons identity theft has been allowed to run rampant throughout the United States.
In the hopes of combating such criminal activity, the NYPD and LionCage Shredding have banded together to make destroying personal and potentially compromising information easier and more accessible than ever. In an effort to raise consciousness of America's most widespread white-collar crime, LionCage has agreed to make the state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly MDX-1 Mobile Shredding Unit from its fleet available for public use on the 1st Sunday of each month.
The precise location of these New York City document-shredding stations will vary throughout the five boroughs in the hopes of raising public awareness and providing easy access to secure document shredding throughout New York City.
The first such public document-shredding station will take place at the Staten Island Mall on Sunday, December 1, 2013 between the hours of 11 am and 2 pm.
All paper will be shredded on location in a LionCage state-of-the-art shredding truck and 100% of the paper will be recycled.
"It is our greatest pleasure to give back in this season of giving and we are committed to providing regular free events with the NYPD throughout the year all across New York City," stated Eli Rowe, CEO of LionCage Shredding. "LionCage Shredding is proud to work closely with the NYPD Crime Prevention Unit and Community Affairs in the fight for a safer, more trustworthy America."
