Safe Exchange Zone

With the ever growing use and popularity of websites and apps such as Craigslist, Let Go, Facebook Marketplace, etc., the Middletown Police Department has taken steps to provide a well-lit, convenient place for users to complete transactions at any time of the day or night.  

Two parking spaces at the new Middletown Borough Building are posted as a “Safe Exchange Zone”. These two parking spaces are located at the northwest corner and northeast corner of the police parking lot, closest to the East Emaus Street entrance.  

Nearby light provides adequate lighting for anyone planning on purchasing or selling items to another person, which they are likely meeting for the first time.  An exterior video security camera will record the “Safe Exchange Zone”.  These two parking spaces are also ideal for parents needing a neutral area for child custody exchange between parents.
