The Summerville Police Department would like to announce an Internet Purchase Exchange “Safe Zone” inside the police department’s lobby at 300 West 2nd North Street.
We feel strongly that it is necessary to establish an area where citizens can go to feel at ease when purchasing or selling items from sites such as Facebook, Craigslist, Offerup, etc. The department’s lobby is well-lit and monitored by 24/7 surveillance with parking spaces readily available. While an officer will not be present to monitor exchanges or verify if the item(s) you are exchanging are stolen, please don’t hesitate to call for assistance if you feel uncomfortable. Conveniently, our dispatch center is also located in the lobby.
For emergencies, call 911.
For non-emergencies call 843-875-1650.
