Law enforcement in Camden County have rolled out some new public safety initiatives.
On Thursday, September 6th, officials with the Camden County Police Department unveiled two new public safety campaigns that will begin taking place within the community.
One of which was creating a Safe Exchange Zone, located just outside of the police station, where individuals buying or selling items on websites like Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace can meet up to complete their transactions.
Officials say the new zone is under 24-hour surveillance, which they hope will give users more peace of mind when meeting up with someone they aren't familiar with.
"We want to make sure that when you do these transactions, whether you're the seller or the buyer, that you do so safely," said Lt. Zsakheim James, of the Camden County Police Department.
Camden County Police Department officials also announced a second public safety campaign called Park Smart, which aims to raise awareness about the importance of locking your car doors and removing any valuables from inside of it to avoid falling victim to theft.
