Buying or selling something from a stranger online? The Palatine Police Department reminds citizens to use their "Internet Purchase Exchange Zone" in support of a safer venue for residents to exchange goods sold through online sites.
A large sign designates a well-lit area on the west side of the main police station parking lot that is under 24-hour video surveillance. This exchange zone provides a safer area to reduce the risk of criminal activity.
Have your meet up location be, by the sign, at the Palatine Police Headquarters front parking lot, 595 N. Hicks Road.
