Captain Tony Straub states the exchange zone is at the parking lot on the east side of the police department’s facility.

The spot is frequented a lot in the evening and provides people a safer way to make transactions rather than giving out their own address. Captain Straub stated the entire area is monitored by cameras and even if an incident happens and an officer isn’t immediately available they can look at the tape.

This is the one and only location in the area and Captain Straub said they don’t have the resources to have alternative sites.

Captain Straub believes a location like this will make things safer for the public.
