ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Police Department has designated two parking spots outside the new police station at 1515 W. Main Street to safely conduct internet purchase transactions and child custody exchanges.
The spots are indicated with signage. The lobby of the police station will continue to serve as a safe place for conducting these transactions as well.
Both the lobby and parking spots are monitored by security cameras, and their close proximity to police personnel means residents can meet there with confidence, according to a news release from the St. Charles Police Department.
“The Internet Purchase and Custody Exchange locations are electronically recorded,” St. Charles Police Chief James Keegan said in the release. “When exchanging property via the internet and not using a mail service, or when custody exchanges are contentious, we encourage you to choose the police station as a safe and secure location to do so.
More information about the safe exchange locations or internet safety is available by contacting St. Charles Crime Prevention Officer James Burden at 630-443-3835 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
