City of Peculiar, MO – 03/30/2016 Peculiar Police Department announces it has joined the SafeTrade initiative for safer completion of online transactions.

            SafeTrade is a simple program for police and sheriffs departments to encourage transactions at their facilities; for classified sites to strengthen their safety and security initiatives, and for users to insist on SafeTradeby conducting their transactions only at a local police or sheriffs office.

In the past few months, a number of U.S. police departments have offered to host online transactions, most of them referring to Craigslist as the reason. Participating police departments can now post banners or use logos referring to their facilities as SafeTrade Stations. Additional information is available at www.safetradestations.com.

 

Residents may utilize the Peculiar Police Departments parking lot, which is monitored by security cameras, to conduct Safe Trade transactions. While the parking lot is continuously monitored, the Department ask that trades be conducted between 8 am and 7 pm, 7 days a week. Although not required, citizens should notify the officer on duty that they are there to conduct a Safe Trade transaction.

If a citizen would like for an officer to be present at the time of trade, they will need to contact the Police Department at 816-779-5102, to request an officer be present. However, due to the nature of policing, the department is not able to guarantee that an officer will be available when requested and ask the citizens to keep this in mind when requesting an officer’s presence.

Stay safe and use our Safe Trade Zone to complete your online transactions. The Safe Trade Zone is located at the Peculiar Police Department 224 N Main St. Peculiar, MO 64078
