Police station parking lots designated internet exchange areas
Publish Date 05/24/2019
The Kansas City Missouri Police Department has long encouraged residents to conduct online-based transactions at its stations, and now there is formal signage in place at every patrol division parking lot to indicate that.
Police encourage those who set up sales or trades in online forums to come do the in-person transaction at any of the department’s six patrol division stations throughout the city. The goal is to provide a safe space for residents to conduct transactions during daylight hours. Buyers and sellers should be aware that anyone who is unwilling to meet at a police station for the transaction may have ulterior motives and could be unsafe.
The new police station parking lot signage is intended not only to direct online buyers and sellers where to park for exchanges, but also to formally welcome them.
