Exchange Zone Spaces Now Available at the Duncanville Police Station

exchange-zone-signWith the increasing ability to make purchases online, the Duncanville Police Department is now offering the public two designated parking spaces in front of the Duncanville Police Station (203 E. Wheatland Rd) to complete transactions. The “Exchange Zone” spaces are well-lit and under 24-hour surveillance, giving residents and commuters a safe place to purchase or exchange property from online sale sites such as Craigslist, Offer Up, 5 Miles, and Facebook. “It is important to remember that the people you meet online are strangers and can pose dangers,” said Duncanville Chief of Police Robert Brown. “Not every buyer or seller you meet online is someone who is true with their intent. Unfortunately, there are certain individuals that capitalize upon the inexperience of others. Our goal is to reduce victimization by online predators, and provide a safe and monitored place to conduct these types of transactions.” In addition to online purchase exchanges, the Department also invites blended families to utilize the Exchange Zone for child custody arrangements. For more information, contact the Duncanville Police Crime Prevention Office at 972-780-5027.
