The Bedford County Sheriff’s Office is alerting area residents that members of U.S. Census Bureau will be collecting field data locally until Oct. 11.

Temporary workers are visiting locations to update address lists and maps. They also are knocking on doors to ask residents to verify addresses and gather information on additional living quarters.

U.S. Census Bureau employees will have a photo identification card and will carry laptops and black canvas bags with the U.S. Census Bureau logo.
