Press Release

(Woodland, CA) – May 5, 2017 Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig announced that on Friday, May 12, 2017, the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office and Umpqua Bank will be co-hosting another free shred event for Yolo County residents and Umpqua Bank customers. This is an effort by Umpqua Bank to give back to the community and to support the efforts the District Attorney is making to protect individuals and businesses from identity theft. "Shredding paperwork containing personal information, such as social security numbers, is one of the first steps in reducing the chance of identity theft happening to you," said District Attorney Jeff Reisig.

Umpqua Bank is mindful of its customers’ banking routines, which adds an additional layer of protection so that if something out of the ordinary arises, the bank can stop it before the customers’ identities are compromised.

Umpqua Bank and the District Attorney encourage people to take advantage of this free opportunity that will help prevent identity theft. The event will take place at Umpqua Bank located at 203 Main Street in Woodland on Friday, May 12, 2017, between 10:00 and 2:00 p.m. There is no limit to the number of boxes of documents that need to be shredded in a safe and secure manner.
