Fauquier County residents who buy or sell things over the internet now have another safe place to make their sales.
The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office established a new internet-exchange location at the Vint Hill Community Center on Aiken Drive.
Signs denote two parking spaces next to the tennis courts for citizens to use to meet buyers or sellers. The location is in a public space and is well-lit and monitored 24/7 by video surveillance in the Emergency Communications Center in Warrenton, according to a sheriff’s office press release.
Other internet purchase-and-exchange locations are available at the public library branch in Marshall and Bealeton and at the Sheriff’s Office in Warrenton.
All locations provide a safe environment to meet for the purchase or exchange of items. They can also be used for other reasons, such as child-custody exchange.
The sheriff’s office encourages citizens to use these spaces in lieu of a random parking lot or other such locations, the press release said.
