Police Launch New Buy and Sell Exchange Zone in Mississauga
Published January 24, 2017 at 3:24 pm
Lately, a lot of attention has been paid to sales online that have gone terribly wrong. While most people manage to sell and purchase goods from online buyers and sellers (most people are trustworthy, after all) without incident, there have been a few instances where theft—and even violent crime–has occurred during a sale arranged online.
To help mitigate fears and offer protection, Peel police launched their first Buy and Sell Exchange Zone. The zone, which opened on Nov. 7 at the police’s 22 Division station on Hurontario in Brampton, provided people with a safe place to exchange goods.
Now, Peel police have announced that they’ve launched a second Buy and Sell Exchange Zone in Mississauga. The second zone is located at the 12 Division location at 4600 Dixie Road.
Residents who are meeting with someone to either buy or a sell a good they’ve listed or discovered online are welcome to use designated parking spaces to conduct the transaction. The zones are comprised of parking spots that are monitored by surveillance cameras.
Peel police are the first department in the GTA to introduce such an initiative.
