Police adopt recommendation from Youth Retention Advisory Board

City of Charlottetown Police Services has established a safe area for transactions between people buying or selling items from online ads through sites such as Kijiji or Facebook Shop N’ Swap groups. The eWatch Safe Exchange Zone, as it has been dubbed by Police, is located in a well-lit, high traffic area in front of the Police station at 10 Kirkwood Drive. It consists of two parking spaces, signage and 24-hour video surveillance, thanks to the Charlottetown Police Services’ eWatch video camera network.

The idea for the safe exchange zone in Charlottetown came from the City’s Youth Retention Advisory Board. It was one of the recommendations in the Board’s report to Council in October 2016.

The eWatch Safe Exchange Zone is available to anyone conducting legal online transactions every day, although parking will be limited until evenings after 4 pm and on weekends. Though the Police won’t be getting involved in the transactions or verifying the authenticity of items, they are nearby if something happens.

Police are still encouraging those completing online transactions in person to bring a friend or family member with them and inspect items before committing to buying. It’s also recommended that people not accept cheques or an e-transfer from strangers.
