Safe “Exchange Zone” Program

Home / Programs / Safe “Exchange Zone” Program

The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office created a safe “Exchange Zone” area in their parking lot for use by the general public.

The parking lot is well lit, with security cameras rolling 24 hours a day, an emergency call box and deputies working in the building.  Sheriff Stuart encourages the general public to use the area to conduct transactions for online sales, child custody visitation exchanges or any other time they have to meet with a stranger or any time a citizen may feel the need for an added layer of safety.
