Safe Exchange Zone
Cinnaminson Police Create Area To Finish Transactions That Begin Online
Cinnaminson, NJ -- Cinnaminson Police have established an Internet Purchase Safe Exchange Zone.
There are two parking spaces in the Cinnaminson Police Department parking lot at 900 Manor Road that are designated as the Safe Exchange Zone. The designated parking spaces are clearly marked by signs and outlined in high visibility paint.
The Safe Exchange Zone is under video surveillance 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Vehicles are to pull in the parking space, nose in only, to conduct the transaction.
Officers will not participate in transactions, act as witnesses, or offer legal advice. However, if a crime is committed, there will be video evidence which should aid in identifying the suspect and prosecuting the case.
Police also remind consumers to use common sense when making online purchases.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is. It is recommended that transactions in the Safe Exchange Zone should be conducted Monday through Friday during regular business hours whenever possible. If the transaction cannot be conducted during regular business hours, all attempts should be made to conduct the transaction during daylight hours to provide the best video quality. Late night transactions should be avoided.
