The West Chicago Police Department is now an internet purchase exchange location.
Thanks to the folks at OfferUp, the donation of a sign is now posted at the Police Station. Residents are encouraged to use the lobby or parking lot, located at 325 Spencer Street, for a safe location to exchange items sold via the internet.
The exchange location is open and available for use, but residents should not expect officers to mediate transactions.
The West Chicago Police Department recommends using the exchange location during daylight hours. In an event that an officer is needed, people can go into the Police Department and request to speak with an officer or call 911.
