Fraud Prevention Month in Calgary

We are partnering with the Calgary Police Service Sunday, March 1st, 2020 for Fraud Prevention Month. The ERA will be shredding hard drives, phones, tapes and other small devices holding sensitive data from the Police department and the public. We intend on educating the public on how important it is to dispose of their unwanted and old electronics correctly so that the data doesn’t find itself in another person’s possession. This will be a day to educate and supply answers to all of the publics’ fraud-related questions.

We will be bringing a portable hard drive shredder to allow the public to shred their personal devices, free of charge.
