East Chicago PD
The East Chicago Police Department is inviting the public to use their parking lot or lobby when they meet with total strangers to take part in transactions of items that have been advertised over the internet, in classified ads and by other means. Police Chief Mark Becker told the Region News Team the program is called “Operation Safe Sale” and is meant as a means to lessen the likelihood of you being robbed or assaulted when making these transactions.
The program is offered Monday through Friday from 9am-7pm and then on Saturday’s from 11am to 3pm. During those times, every effort will be made to have an Officer present for that meeting between the buyer and the seller. The public may also chose to simply use the department’s parking lot or interior lobby, 2301 E. Columbus Drive, to carry out those dealings without an officer present if they so desire. The parking lot and the lobby are well lit and offer extensive video tape coverage.
