Upcoming Elizabethtown Police Department Events

Elizabethtown Police Officers John Thomas and Josh Richardson, stopped by our office today to discuss some pretty exciting events that Elizabethtown Police Department has coming up soon. Check out our interview with them discussing these upcoming events!

Community Shred Event:

Would you like to get ride of all of your old files and never have to worry about them again?

Well now’s your chance! The Community Shred Event, sponsored in partnership with Brenco Document Shredding, Walmart, and the Elizabethtown Police Department, invite you to come out to the Elizabethtown Walmart parking lot, and shred your old documents!

The Community Shred will take place on Saturday, May, 6, 2017 at 100 Walmart Drive (E’town Walmart parking lot), from 9 AM – 11 AM.

This event is to shred PAPER ONLY! It is asked that you do NOT include: Batteries, Pens, Plastic Bags, Cords, String, Hard Plastic Items, Metal Objects, or Glass.

There is a two box maximum per customer, but you are encouraged to cycle back through the line as many times as you want! Items such as Paper clips, staples, rubber bands, and spiral bounds are acceptable.

There is no cost for this event, although, a $5 DONATION is requested, out of the kindness of your heart.

All Proceeds from this event will be donated towards Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). CASA staffs, recruits, trains, and supports a network of volunteers, who are court-appointed to act as advocates for abused and neglected children under the protection of the Hardin County Family court. CASA volunteers are appointed to specific cases on which Family Court Judges would like an ‘extra set of eyes and ears.” CASA volunteers watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children.
