SAVE THE DATE -- On Saturday, August 11, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office will be hosting a "Shred Day" at the Lincoln County Courthouse parking lot located at 225 West Olive Street, Newport, OR 97365. The event is being held in an effort to combat identity theft and financial fraud for our citizens and assist them in protecting their personal privacy. 

Shred Day is a free event open to the public. Please bring your paper documents, files, notebooks, canceled checks, or any other document that contains your personal or sensitive information. We also accept VHS tapes, backup tapes, CDs, and DVDs that contain personal or sensitive information. The shredding is 100% secure and will be conducted by an iSecure truck on site. 

There is no limit to the amount of shredding that you may bring; however, once the truck is full, we will not be able to accept any more documents.
