Safe Exchange Zone
The Huntsville Police Department has set up a Safe Exchange Zone in the front parking lot of the department, near the entrance. It is located at 1220 11th St.

The spot is marked by a sign, and markings on the ground.

The purpose of the safe zone is to have a place where people can sell their item to a stranger, or to transfer children from the custody of 1 parent to another, without fear of intimidation or physical danger.

The area is under 24-hour video surveillance. If an officer is available, you can request that they stand by while the transaction is taking place.

For non-emergency calls, you can reach the Huntsville Police Department at 936-435-8001.

Be sure to thank the Huntsville Police Department for meeting this need in our community.
