With millions of people buying and selling online every day, through such providers as OfferUp, Craig's List and others, providing a safe place to complete your online transaction has become very important. Having a secure location helps eliminate the risks associated with two strangers meeting at a private residence. To address this the City has immediately implemented a safe spot for these transactions.
Located at City Hall (40 Severance Circle), behind the Police Station, a sign is on display designating the Meet Up Spot. For added safety this area will include a 24 hour surveillance camera. This designated spot will protect both buyers and sellers by deterring criminal intent or activity. We are pleased to partner with OfferUp to help ensure that buyers and sellers have a successful experience. The CHPD continues to look for new and creative ways to protect our residents and we see this as an important step.
