Free Shred Event Thursday, Oct. 26 

The Chapin Police Department will be holding a FREE shred event on Thursday, October 26 from 10 am to 12 pm in the parking lot at Chapin Town Hall. This is a wonderful opportunity for residents to securely destroy personal documents, financial statements and other sensitive materials that might expose them to identity theft or fraud if simply thrown in the regular trash. Shred360 provides secure document destruction and recycling to provide you with peace of mind. Please observe our three box/bag limit to allow everyone an opportunity to participate.
