If you plan to buy or sell any items in a meeting with a stranger you may have arranged online, you are urged to perform these transactions inside the lobby of the Springfield Police Headquarters building at 130 Pearl Street. Simply come into the lobby and inform the police officer of the reason for your visit.
Avoid becoming a victim. Perform these transactions in a safe location to protect yourself and your property. The lobby also has an ATM.
