Department News – Lacey Township Police Department – Reminder to Use Internet Purchase Safe Zone – October 30, 2018

The above photo depicts the “Internet Purchase Safe Zone” sign posted in the front parking lot of the Lacey Township Police Department.

On March 24, 2017, the Lacey Township Police Department began its Internet Purchase Safe Zone, where citizens have a safe place to make transactions as a result of on-line purchases, for example Craigslist.  The Safe Zone was created to provide a safe location for buyers and sellers to complete their transactions, while at the same time protecting the citizens (buyers and sellers) of Lacey Township from incidents such as Thefts and Scams. The Internet Purchase Safe Zone has been arranged in the front parking lot of the Lacey Township Police Department, located at 808 W. Lacey Road in Forked River. The parking lot is well-lit and continuously monitored by surveillance cameras. Two designated spaces in the front parking lot are marked with signs that state “Internet Purchase Safe Zone.”

Respectfully, the Lacey Township Police Officers/Employees will not be participating in the transactions or able to act as witnesses. In addition, the officers/employees will not be available for legal advice or allowed to settle disputes between parties involved in transactions occurring at our facility. Transactions involving any type of weapons or drugs are strictly prohibited from the Lacey Township Police Internet Purchase Safe Zone.
Our primary goal in the safe zone effort is to create an easily accessible, secure place, for the residents of Lacey Township to conduct transactions.
If anyone has any questions in regard to the Internet Purchase Safe Zone you may contact Lieutenant Paul Sullivan, Jr., at 609-693-6636 ext. 2577.
