Post Date:01/09/2018

The  Meridian  Township  Police  Department  reminds  residents  they  can use  police  facilities  as  a  safe  location  to  complete  Facebook  Marketplace  transactions  as  well  as Craigslist, Let Go, Offer Up and any other online transaction type of service.

There  is  no  need  to  call  ahead  or  make  an  appointment  –  buyers  and  sellers  can  use  the  foyer  of the  Public  Safety  Building  at  any  time.

Personal Online Buying and Selling Safety Tips from online sites:
•     Meet in a public place
•     Consider having a friend accompany you
•     Do not meet in a secluded place, or invite strangers into your home
•     Be especially careful when buying/selling high value items
•     Tell a friend or family member where and when you are going
•     Take your cell phone along
•     Trust your instincts
•     Make the payment in person
•     Know what items and actions are prohibited
