Radnor Township Police Superintendent Christopher Flanagan is pleased to introduce the newest public safety tool in town, the “Safe Exchange Zone,” located in the parking lot of the Township Building (301 Iven Avenue, Wayne). The idea was brought to fruition by Sergeant Joseph Maguire.
The Safe Exchange Zone is clearly marked with white painted lines and signage in front of the police entrance. Please stay within this marked area when meeting someone. Although the Safe Exchange Zone is video recorded 24/7, it will not be monitored by a member of the police department; however, Radnor Police Officers do frequently patrol the area.
We encourage residents to use the ‘Safe Exchange Zone’ for buying or selling of items that have been initiated from online market places such as Craigslist or eBay. The site is also available for child custody exchange. Should anyone ever need the assistance of police, the automatic 9-1-1 telephone is located just feet away inside the vestibule.
🔹 Do NOT go to a location alone.
🔹 Make sure to notify a family member or friend that you are purchasing/selling an item at the desired location.
🔹 Insist on the exchange location to be public; never inside a home or building.
🔹 Trust your instincts, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
