Charleston County Government is offering citizens an opportunity to shred documents for free on April 22 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Public Services Building located at 4045 Bridge View Drive in North Charleston.

 

According to the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), shredding documents with personal information can help minimize the risk of becoming the victim of identity theft. Experts suggest shredding any documents with personal information like account numbers, social security numbers and date of birth. In addition, a recent study found more than 13 million consumers fell victim to identity theft fraud in 2015.

THE ILLUMINATION PROJECT LISTENING SESSIONS ON JAMES ISLAND 

THE ILLUMINATION PROJECT LISTENING SESSIONS ON JAMES ISLAND

 

In a continuing effort to get the word out, I wanted to be certain that as many as possible were aware of the Illumination Project and the upcoming meeting date of April 19 on James Island.

The Illumination Project is an effort to create a better understanding and partnership between citizens and the police department.  Both parties are encouraging an honest exchange of thoughts, questions, complaints, ideas and overall communication in order to avoid some of the terrible situations that have occurred throughout the country over the past several years.  The Charleston Police Department is seeking to gather the best practices and outcomes from these listening sessions and better their policies and strengthen the relationship with the public.

There are two sessions scheduled for James Island- a 4 p.m. and a 6:15 p.m. session, both to be held at James Island Charter High School in the new auditorium. Anyone from the community is welcome to attend and it is not strictly city-only residents.  We all live on James Island and face the same issues.

Please pass this information along to your neighborhood residents and please attend if you are able. 

You are most welcome to contact me with questions.

Thank you,

Kathleen Wilson

 

 Below is a synopsis found on the City's website.

 

The City of Charleston began a year-long project to further strengthen relationships between the citizens and police by respecting the importance of Public Safety and Individual Rights.  The Charleston Police Fund is sponsoring this project in an effort to involve all walks of people in the Charleston community.

 

Starting in early March of 2016, the Charleston Illumination Project is conducting many Listening Sessions; they will last just over an hour and a half.  We are looking for your hopes, concerns and plans to build open and long-lasting relationships between the police and the citizens they serve.  Open to the public, these events will be held in the late afternoon and early evening over a period of three months in order to meet a variety of schedules.

Charleston County Observes April as National 9-1-1 Education Month; Targets Pocket Dialing 

News Release

Charleston County Observes April as National 9-1-1 Education Month; Targets Pocket Dialing

 

April is National 9-1-1 Education Month and Charleston County Government is calling on local leaders, schools and public safety agencies to help educate our citizens about the importance and appropriate use of 9-1-1 services.

 

This year, Charleston County will place an emphasis on educating the public on how to avoid un-intentional 9-1-1 calls. Cell phones are the primary source for 9-1-1 calls and if the phone isn’t properly locked, citizens may unknowingly call 9-1-1. It’s a situation commonly referred to as pocket dialing. During this year’s National 9-1-1 Education Month, we are reminding citizens to Lock it before you Pocket It.

 

“Our 9-1-1 public educators continue to do an amazing job in raising the awareness of how 9-1-1 works,” said Consolidated Dispatch. “This year’s focus on pocket dials will help reduce the number of unintentional calls received in our 9-1-1 Center so that we are available to answer the true emergency calls that come in.”

 

During the month of April, our public educators will reach out to the community through various events. Beginning at the start of the month, Charleston County Consolidated 9-1-1 Center’s Public Education team will visit the following events and locations:

 

  • North Charleston Citizens Public Safety Academy, April 12
  • Mount Pleasant Police Academy, April 14
  • Carolina Voyager Charter School, April 19
  • Charleston County Earth Day Festival, April 23
  • 3rd Annual Operation Military Child, April 23
  • Smart911 Sign Up Day, April 30 – details and locations here

 

Media Opportunity – Telecommunicator Awards on April 15, 3:00 p.m. at North Charleston City Hall

 

The National Telecommunicator Week will take place April 10-16 and County dispatchers and call-takers will be honored April 15 during the annual award ceremony at North Charleston City Hall at 3:00 p.m. In addition to the traditional awards, we will honor a local 5-year-old who called 9-1-1 when his mother needed help.
