5th District Police Station Provides Safe Exchange Zones



The idea of buying and selling goods with local people online can be enticing. However, the allure can also attract unscrupulous folks who might want to rip off or harm other folks.

It is for this reason that Captain Gillespie, Commander of the MCPD’s 5th District in Germantown, has created a place where folks completing online transactions can go a feel safe meeting strangers. The two Safe Exchange Zones are in the parking lot of the 5th District Police Station and are under video surveillance. The two designated parking spaces are marked with a Safe Exchange Zone sign. The spaces are in the front lot of the police station located at 20000 Aircraft Drive in Germantown.
