RAYTOWN POLICE ESTABLISH ONLINE EXCHANGE SAFE TRADE ZONE
The Raytown Police Department has established an area within our public parking lot that can be used as a safe space for making internet purchase exchanges. The area is located on the south side of our back parking lot, near the police department entrance, and it is well lit and available for use 24 hours a day. The area is not monitored or staffed by officers and we encourage everyone to still be cautious when meeting any person that they do not know. If a person is unwilling to meet you at the Police Department to conduct a transaction, that should make you highly suspicious of their intentions. Please note: firearms transactions will not be allowed on the property.
