OPP hosts ‘safe zone’ for online buyers and sellers to meet

Police Services Board Chair Richard Gwozdowski with Detachment Commander Staff Sergeant John Hatch, and Councillor Janice Maynard at the Prince Edward OPP Project Safe Trade ‘safe zone’.

To help make online transactions safer, and more comfortable, Prince Edward County OPP have launched ‘Project Safe Trade’ in their parking lot.

The purpose of Project Safe Trade is to create a ‘community safe zone’ at an OPP detachment parking lot to facilitate online property transactions,” said Const. Aaron Miller, Community Safety Officer. “Creating a community safe zone is about moving online transactions away from secluded parking lots, personal residences or other areas and bringing them to a public place.”

The OPP welcomes everybody to use the OPP ‘Safe Trade’ designated parking spaces at the County Road 1 detachment.

“These Safe Trade parking spots are available at all times with no appointment necessary. The OPP does not monitor or mediate the use of these premises for these purposes.”

Online transaction safety tips:
· Meet in a busy public place
· Bring a trusted friend or family member along as a witness
· Keep transactions during to daylight hours
· Do not erase emails, texts or voicemails between yourself and the seller/buyer
