Internet commerce has increased tremendously in recent years and making transactions between individuals via online sales can be risky. The Police Department has seen cases of people being robbed and even assaulted under these circumstances.

The Mountlake Terrace Police Department encourages you to meet in public places and has made the parking lot outside the city’s Police Station available as a “Safe Internet Transaction Zone”. The Police Station is located at the Civic Center, at 5906 232nd Street SW.

If someone is not willing to make a transaction in a police station parking lot, heed that as a warning. At the very least, you could be buying stolen property, so exercise care when making this transaction.

The Mountlake Terrace Police Station has parking spaces in the front of the building that can be used as a Safe Transaction Zone. Even when the business office is closed, the building has cameras that view the building exterior and lobby areas. This makes it a much safer place to arrange a private transaction.

For more information, contact the Mountlake Terrace Police Department at (425) 670-8260.
