New e-commerce safety zone

The UGA Police Department has created an “E-Commerce Safety Zone” as a service to the university community.

E-commerce, or the purchasing and trading of items and products through the Internet, has increased dramatically over the last few years. Unfortunately, some of these transactions throughout the country have turned into scams, robberies or worse.

The UGA Police Department has created a clearly marked, well-lit place in its parking lot at the Hodgson Oil Building on Oconee Street for people making transactions with others they’ve met on popular Internet sites such as eBay, Craigslist and more. This space also has video surveillance.
