South Carolina police set up safe child custody exchange location

There have been many news stories of violence taking place in connection with internet sales transactions. Sadly, there are also reports of deadly incidents involving parents with child custody orders meeting for visitation transfers. In an effort to protect the safety of all of these individuals, one South Carolina police department has established a safe location for custody exchanges and internet sale transactions.

In response to concerns over reports of violence between parents or significant others, officials with the Marion County Police Department decided it was time take action. They recognized the need of parents and customers to set up a location that could provide peace of mind for parents complying with custody orders, and consumers meeting for a sales transaction arranged online. Police have designated several parking spaces located behind the station house that will ensure that police officers will be available if the need arises.

According to a social media post from officers, the parking area will be kept under video surveillance at all times. The lot will be accessible each day, all day in order to facilitate the safe exchange of both children and merchandise. Those who choose to avail themselves of this option will benefit from the security offered by the presence of law enforcement.

Many who use sites such as ebay classified or Craigslist are leery of inviting strangers to their homes. Though a public meeting place for sales transactions and setting up meetings for child custody exchanges may be a more attractive alternative, the enhanced safety provided by the South Carolina police station is the best option for many residents. Those who are still attempting to resolve issues related to custody or other family law matters may wish to consult with an experienced family law attorney.
