The Creve Coeur Police Department, in an effort to reduce possible victimization associated with in-person transactions which originated via online sites such as Craigslist, eBay, etc., suggests that residents meet the other party at the Police Department to finalize personal transactions. Transactions may be completed on the Police Department parking lot or in the Police lobby between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., seven days a week.
This offer does not extend to transactions involving:
- Large, cumbersome household items, appliances and landscape care equipment
- The sale of any contraband, stolen property or other illegal items
- Firearms or explosive material
The Creve Coeur Police Department is strictly providing an exchange location and will not facilitate, or otherwise be associated with any transactions. Rules of Craigslist and other personal transaction sites should be followed. It is important to note that items cannot be stored at the Police Department or on the parking lot.
