The city of Chamblee has taken steps to make such a situation worry free. On March 30, the city designated two downtown locations as “Online Exchange Zones” where the public can meet to buy, sell or trade items.
The two areas, located at the Chamblee Police Department lobby and nearby parking lot, offer a place to conduct business 24 hours a day and seven days a week through constant video surveillance.
“In addition, police officers will be available if needed to stand by to increase everyone’s sense of security,” reads a release. “If requested, police officers will check serial numbers against stolen item databases in an effort to assure they are not already reported stolen.”
In order to exchange safely, users are instructed to call the Chamblee Police Department a few minutes before their arrival. Read more about it! Click here.
