VERO BEACH – The Vero Beach Police Department has joined a growing list of law enforcement agencies in becoming a safe area for e-commerce exchange.

E-Commerce Exchange secure areas are designated meeting places for transactions and purchases made online.

“The purpose of a secure e-commerce exchange area is to provide a well-lit, public, and CCTV-monitored place, so that our citizens can be safe when they meet a seller to make a purchase on sites such as than Craigslist, eBay or Facebook. Vero Beach Police spokesperson Ofc. Anna Carden said in a statement.

The west parking lot immediately adjacent to the Vero Beach Police Department at 1055 20th Street now has a designated sign marking the area as a safe e-commerce exchange area.

The car park and the entire area in front of the police station are monitored by video surveillance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The location offers easy access and the availability of immediate assistance to complete your transactions in a safe and efficient manner.

In addition to the front parking lot, the lobby of the VBPD could also be used as a security zone exchange site at any time. The lobby is available and open to the public, as well as monitored by CCTV 24/7.

The mission of the VBPD is to ensure the safety and protection of all citizens and visitors, and they encourage people to use their E-Commerce Exchange safe area at all times.

If residents of Vero Beach require emergency assistance while using the security zone, they can call 911 in Indian River County. For non-emergency assistance, call (772) 978-4600 anytime.
