K.I.S.S. Program Returns: Keeping Identities of Seniors Safe

The K.I.S.S. Program will be available:

DATE: 3/19/2018 - 3/30/2018
TIME: Monday - Friday 8:30 am - 5:00 pm  
LOCATION: Hudson City Hall, 520 Warren St., Hudson, NY 12534

The Columbia County K.I.S.S. Program will once again be available to seniors in every town in Columbia County.  The K.I.S.S. Program, founded by Columbia County Clerk Holly Tanner, stands for Keeping the Identities of Seniors Safe.  It was designed to protect the identities of our seniors while assisting them in the shredding of their sensitive materials. Seniors are encouraged to contact their local Town Hall for hours of operation and more information on the program.  Justin Weaver, Columbia County Clerk's Records Services Manager, is overseeing the program and can also be contacted with any questions at 518-822-0143.

 The program is offered quarterly as a service to assist local Seniors with the secure and safe destruction of documents that contain personal information. Old bank statements, credit card receipts, legal documents, and tax forms are just a selection of the types of documents that need to be made unreadable with a shredding service. Seniors can rest assured that their documents will be secure from the moment they are taken to the town hall, and that the company doing the shredding is a trusted, bonded company.

As Temps Drop, Remain Vigilant

With temps dropping dangerously low, it's important for us to remain vigilant in keeping a watchful eye on our friends and neighbors in the community. Chief Moore issued an order this morning requiring that officers on every shift check areas known to frequently be used for homeless encampments to ensure that anyone who is out in the cold is given the option of a place to warm up and is connected with DSS to arrange emergency shelter. We all have neighbors who could perhaps use a friendly check-in, and we may encounter people in our daily travels who seem to have suffered from extended cold exposure. Please reach out to HPD at 518-828-3388 with any concerns and request a wellness check. Thank you!
