GREENBURGH, N.Y. - The Greenburgh Police Department is introducing a “Safe Exchange Zones” to ensure the safety of local residents making transactions over the Internet during the holiday season.
Police officials announced the designation of the Safe Exchange Zone on Thursday, which will be under 24-hour surveillance at the parking lot of the Greenburgh Police Headquarters.
"For anyone who purchases on the internet (i.e. Craigslist, eBay) can now safely make the exchange at the Greenburgh Police Dept in the parking lot," police officials posted on Twitter Thursday morning. Similar Safe Exchange Zones have also been set around other Westchester municipalities.
According to officials, “as person-to-person Internet purchases and transactions become prevalent in modern society, (police) want to ensure the safety of our residents and communities."
