(Ankeny, IA) -- The Ankeny Police Department is offering a safe place for people buying, selling, or exchanging goods online.
Police say cash transactions can be conducted at parking spaces marked with Transaction Safe Place signs at the Ankeny Police Department Headquarters at 411 SW Ordnance Road. APD says the spaces are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is well-lit and monitored by security cameras around the clock. Police say inviting on online buyer or seller to the police station is less risky than inviting a stranger to your home or workplace.
