The Police Department is a designated Internet Safe Trade Zone. With the rise in online trading in which buyer and seller must meet to complete private transactions, the safety of those involved is a primary concern. Risks can include theft, robberies, and physical threats or harm. Residents seeking a safe place to conduct these transactions are free to utilize the parking lot and/or lobby of the Police Headquarters building on a 24/7 basis.
Please be aware that police personnel may not become actively involved in any transactions unless criminal activity is involved, and will not participate in the exchange of cash or the storing or transferring of items. Also, transactions related to weapons will not be allowed. Large items such as lawn mowers, snow blowers, or machines utilizing gasoline or other hazardous materials are prohibited from being brought into the lobby.
The sign pictured to the left has been placed in the front parking lot of the PD Headquarters building to serve as a reminder of this option. We strongly encourage residents to take advantage of this safe way to conduct transactions.
