Oregon Police Department setting up online exchange zone for safe transactions

OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) - The Oregon Police Department is trying to put an end to Craig's List transactions gone wrong.

Right now they are setting up an online exchange zone right outside their department.

They say it is being done for both those buying and selling items online. With cameras watching the Oregon police are hoping to prevent a violent crime from happening.

“Its just a way to make sure people are safe. There have been many, many success stories with Crag's List, as opposed to the dangerous stories that happen, and we just want to ensure people that they will be safe here,” said Oregon Detective Janet Zale.

Signs will be set up in front of the police department and along Seamen Road. The online exchange zone will be up and running in the next few weeks.

There is also an online exchange zone already set up and staffed 24 hours by Toledo police at the Scott Park Station.
