Peel police are kicking off Crime Prevention Week with the launch of a new initiative aimed at reducing theft and violent crime.
Members of the public who use online classified ads, such as Kijiji, Craigslist or Varage Sale, to either buy or sell goods can now do so under the watchful eye of police.
A Buy and Sell Exchange Zone is available at 22 Division at 7750 Hurontario Street in Brampton. There are dedicated, signed parking spots in the lot which are monitored by surveillance cameras.
This makes Peel Regional Police the first police department in the GTA to have a fully signed zone for this purpose.
Councilor Norm Kelly is interested in Toronto police following suit.
