SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - AARP Louisiana will host a free community event to help protect the community from identity theft.

The community shredding event will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21 at Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Safety Town building, 8910 Jewella Ave.

According to AARP, someone’s identity is stolen every two seconds.

Two trucks will be there to shred private documents. Last year, crews were able to fill an entire shred truck.
