As the holiday season approaches, Marshall Police would like to remind you that there is a place to safely meet and complete purchases of products sold online.
There are two spaces dedicated as Internet Purchase Exchange locations in the public parking lot at 2101 East End Blvd.
While officers will not be assigned to facilitate or monitor the transactions, the parking spaces are located in a well-lit area with 24-hour recorded surveillance.
Any reluctance by either party to meet in the Marshall Police Department parking lot should be taken as a warning sign about the legitimacy of the sale.
A buyer/seller that will communicate only via email, will not provide a telephone number, or attempts to make a last minute change in venue should make you reconsider following through with the purchase.
