Safe Transaction Exchange Zone - News Release

May 4, 2017

Brandon Police Service – News Release

In an ongoing effort to promote safety to the citizens of Brandon, the Brandon Police Service has initiated a new program called the Safe Transaction Exchange Zone.

The Safe Transaction Exchange Zone initiative provides our citizens a safe area for prospective buyers and sellers to meet.  We have designated our public parking lot, located on the north side of the Police Service, as a Safe Transaction Exchange Zone for any type of legitimate exchange our citizens may need.  This may include internet based buyer and seller transactions. 

The Safe Transaction Exchange Zone is available to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is recorded with high quality video surveillance, which is not necessarily live monitored. The area is well-lit at night to provide extra protection to the public. 

If you intend to pursue a meeting to purchase or sell an advertised item from any individual you do not know, please be cautious and do not provide personal or financial information. Additionally, ask a lot of questions if you decide to meet with a prospective buyer or seller.  Do not meet someone you are not familiar with in a location you are not familiar with and do not meet them alone.  Most importantly, use the Brandon Police Service Safe Transaction Exchange Zone at 1020 Victoria Avenue (visitor parking area) to help ensure a safe transaction encounter. The preferred location is at the Safe Transaction Exchange Zone Sign in the North West corner of the visitor parking lot however anywhere in the visitor parking lot may be used to conduct the meeting and exchange of items.
