LITH to host ID theft seminar

LAKE IN THE HILLS – Within the past year, the Lake in the Hills Police Department has experienced a significant rise in the number of identity theft cases.

The trend is a growing concern across the country as thieves become more sophisticated at stealing personal information. Identity theft can disrupt personal finances and credit history.

To address this pattern of crime, the Lake in the Hills Police Department will host a seminar at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Safety Education Center, 1109 Crystal Lake Road.

The seminar is designed to provide tools to protect information and the critical steps to take if information is stolen, as well as to explain how these groups operate.

For information, call the police department at 847-658-5676.
