The Darien Police Department is offering up its parking lot as a safe place to exchange goods bought and sold on Craigslist, Facebook, eBay and other online sites. Starting today, citizens who are purchasing or selling something to a stranger online can meet up in the police department parking lot to conduct their business.
They have added a dedicated area in their public parking lot at 25 Hecker Ave Darien, CT for on‐line buyers and sellers to meet and make the exchanges. The designated safe “Internet Purchase Exchange Location” is in the parking lot on the south side of the building and is marked with a newly installed sign. This area is monitored 24 hours a day by video surveillance and is recorded.
The Rockland Police Department decided to establish two safe exchange zones as well. One is designated right in their own parking lot at 1 Police Plaza and the other is in J.C. Penney’s parking lot in the Rockland Plaza.
If you have any questions about these safe exchange zones, contact the Rockland Police Department at call: 207-593-9132. Read the full story, including safety tips, here.
