The Hopkinsville Police Department now offers the public a “Safe Exchange Area” at the police department’s new headquarters located at 101 North Main Street. The “Safe Exchange Area” is for buyers and sellers that utilize websites like Craigslist to buy and sell items. The idea of the “Safe Exchange Area” is to cut down on potential fraud and robberies that can be associated with these types of transactions. If your completing an online transaction, you can make the exchange in the public parking lot of the police department located off of North Main Street or you can choose to make the exchange inside the front lobby of the building. Both the parking lot and front lobby are under constant surveillance and both are open to the public 24 hours a day.
