Increasing crime from buying or selling on social media has
prompted the Menominee Police Department to become a Safe Trade Zone.
“Our citizens and friends should meet the buyers or sellers in our parking lot or in
our lobby area in an attempt to ensure a safe and honest transaction. If
someone refuses to meet at our location, I would highly recommend that you
cancel the transaction” said Police Chief Brett Botbyl.
The parking lot in front of the Police and Fire Department can be
utilized along with the lobby area in-between the Police Department and City
Hall. The lobby area can be utilized during normal business hours. When
utilizing the parking lot area, please do not block the garage doors so Police
and Fire vehicles can exit for an emergency. The department is located at
2509 10th Street, Menominee, MI 49858
