Upton PD Makes Parking Lot Available For Safe Exchanges

With the increasing popularity of transactions being made through online sites, such as Craigslist or online yard sales, the Upton Police would like to assist citizens by providing a safe meeting place. The public is welcome to use our department parking lot as a place to meet and handle their transactions. Simply come to our parking lot, conduct your transaction, and leave.

There are cameras that point into the parking lot, which is well lit at night. By suggesting to the buyer or seller to meet them at the police station parking lot, it is likely to weed out any potential threats.

If you do choose to meet somewhere other than the police station, be sure to bring someone with you, and also be sure that you tell friends or family members where you’ll be and when you’ll be there. Please remember that no bargain is worth your safety.
