The Police Department public parking area and lobby have been designated as Safety Exchange Zones during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Those who prefer a location away from their homes to exchange goods purchased online or by classifieds can make arrangements to meet at 2701 N. Mays St.
The effort is being offered to help deter fraudulent transactions and assist in maintaining privacy of residents. These locations can also be used for custodial exchanges.
Safety Exchange Zones are under video surveillance at all times. The Department is not responsible for the validity of transactions, and will not be involved nor oversee, the business conducted amongst participating parties. For more information on the Safety Exchange Zone call 512-218-5500.
