The internet is an amazing place and tool. It also has a tendency to be kind of scary. You never know who you're really talking to on the other end.

Sites like Craigslist and Facebook "yardsale" groups have seen a rise in popularity over the last few years. Both outlets are great if you're looking to sell something for a discounted price or get items out of your house as fast as possible.

If you're looking for a specific product or item, you can most likely find it online.

With that being said, most exchanges have to happen in person. That's where things can get a little unsettling.

Some local police stations are participating in Internet Purchase Exchange Locations. The East Fishkill Police Department posted their location on Facebook. The spot is a visitors parking spot located outside of the station and is under surveillance 24 hours, seven days a week.

The secure location makes internet purchases for the buyers and sellers more comfortable.

Have you seen Internet Purchase Exchange Locations at your local police station?
