We’ve joined many other police departments around the country in offering our parking lots as safe locations where Craigslist transactions can be made. There have been cases of robbery or homicide resulting from these transactions made at not so safe locations.
Our lot is under 24 hr surveillance and officers are coming and going at all hours so we think that will be safer for you. We don’t want it to turn into an open air market place–people are coming into the police department for lots of reasons and we have to make room for them too. We can’t participate in the transactions but we think we can be helpful just by being here.
