The Effingham County Sheriff's Office is now offering their parking lot as a "Craigslist & E-Commerce Safe Zone."

Sheriff Jimmy McDuffie has designated an area of the parking lot that is under video surveillance as a safe place for e-commerce trading or for parents that are trading child custody. The ECSO says this is another way for them to provide a safer community for the citizens of Effingham County.

"We just felt like it was an opportunity for them to come and be in a safe environment, where we can see if something happens. We've got two, sometimes three cameras aimed at that area that we can pick up stuff with. It's good enough that we can take a tag number off a car if we have to,” said Sheriff McDuffie.

Remember, never go to a transaction alone and make sure family members or a friend are aware of the transaction and the meeting place.
