(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)

The St. Joseph Police Department wants citizens to be in a safe spot when meeting someone for the first time to exchange money.

The "Internet Purchase Exchange Zone" is there to make sure when someone exchanges money for an internet purchase that they will be seen by security cameras should something go wrong.

Although the "Internet Purchase Exchange Zone" has been implemented for a year according to Sgt. Roy Hoskins, the St. Joseph Police Department wants to reinforce safety when meeting someone and exchanging money.

"There is always a potential for a violent occurrence during anytime you are exchanging money for products, there's always that possibility. This gives people a place to come and feel a little safer when they do that," Sgt. Hoskins said.

The "Internet Purchase Exchange Zone" is located in front of the Law Enforcement Center at 5th & Faraon.
