Stay Safe When Buying/Selling Goods Online & By Traditional Classified Ads
If you buy or sell goods using online sites like Craigslist, or classified ads placed online or in traditional media, you know that such transactions often involve meeting in person with the buyer or seller. This is fraught with risk.
To assist our residents to stay safe, the Bristol Township Police Department is offering the parking lot near the police entrance of the building and the police lobby area as a “transaction safe place.” The police department is located at 2501 Bath Rd, Bristol, PA 19007. Both areas are monitored by cameras twenty-four (24) hours a day.
Needless to say, the use of the police building parking lot and lobby serves as a deterrent for crime. This step by the Bristol Township Police Department is part of a locally growing trend. Police in Tullytown Borough, Philadelphia (any precinct station), Conshohocken, Abington, and Lansdale are among those offering their facilities for safe transactions. If you live in those areas, please check with your police departments for available times and days for the service.
The Philadelphia Inquirer published a good article about this trend; see http://bit.ly/SafeShopping2015.
Please share this information with your Facebook friends. If they don't live in Bristol Township, tell them to check with the police in their area to see if a similar program is available.

ABANDONED VEHICLE NOTICE
Abandoned vehicles are increasingly becoming a problem in our neighborhoods. Bristol Township Police will be actively seeking out abandoned vehicles in our neighborhoods in order to clean up our streets.
Vehicles left on the street as abandoned cause issues for street sweepers, plow trucks, trash trucks, mail vehicles, etc. They are also an eyesore for the rest of the neighborhood.
If you have an abandoned vehicle in your neighborhood that you would like to report, please call our non-emergency number, (215) 785-4040, and give us the location and description of the vehicle. If you have questions about an abandoned vehicle, call (215) 785-4052.
