RADFORD – The Radford City Police Department is giving people a place to safely exchange goods purchased on local sale websites or just safely meet.
The parking lot of the RCPD headquarters now includes a brightly lit area for two vehicles to pull up and make transactions or have a safe meeting.
“We are proud to offer our community a safe exchange zone,” says a statement from the department. “This safe exchange zone has two dedicated spaces that are under video surveillance and allows the public to conduct child custody exchanges, meeting for face to face online sales, or just an area to meet where you may feel the need to meet where there is recorded video surveillance. We hope this area will provide safety and comfort for our citizens.”
