______________________
10 Million Reasons to Support Crime Stoppers – Shredding Identity Theft
Mayor Luecke and Mayor Rea jointly proclaim Crime Stoppers Identity Theft week.

Up to 10 million people become victims of identity theft each year, according to the Federal Trade Commission. Identity theft occurs when someone uses your name, social security number, credit card account or other personal information to commit a crime. On May 12th, Mayor Stephen Luecke and Mayor Jeff Rea jointly proclaimed this week to be Crime Stoppers Identity Theft Awareness Week. The purpose of the Mayors proclamation is to raise awareness and educate the citizens of Michiana on how to deter thieves, detect suspicious activity, and defend themselves against identity theft.

On Friday May 16th at 6:00 p.m., the South Bend Police Department and Crime Stoppers will host a free seminar on Identity Theft Protection. Sgt. Dominic Zultanski will discuss schemes and scams that have been active in and around our area as well as answer your questions on specific issues that effect you in regards to identity theft / fraud prevention and recovery. Several other area, state and federal agency representatives have participated (in putting this night together) and will be either on hand and available for your questions and offer their assistance or have resources available.

On Saturday May 17th, in an effort to help you take the first steps toward protecting your identity, South Bend Area Crime Stoppers is partnering with Enviro-Shred to hold a community shredding day. You can take advantage of this opportunity to begin protecting yourself and support Crime Stoppers. Enviro-Shred will destroy your documents for a small tax-deductible to Crime Stoppers. All proceeds will go toward the Crime Stoppers reward fund. Bring your old documents to Martins Supermarkets at Heritage Square in Granger, or Erskine Plaza in South Bend from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., rain or shine.
