TRANSACTION SAFE PLACE

WPD offers Transaction Safe Place

In a proactive effort to safeguard our citizens, the Woodstock Police
Department is welcoming the public to our department to close their online transactions in a safer way.

The public can take advantage of our department’s lobby or exterior to meet and to handle their transactions. In addition, Woodstock police officers will be available at any time needed to stand by to increase both the buyer’s and seller’s sense of security. “It is our desire to deter those who would prey upon our citizens by moving these transactions from possibly secluded areas to a public area where law enforcement officers would be present”, said Woodstock Police Chief Calvin Moss.

Along with our commitment to the personal safety of both the buyers
and sellers, the Woodstock Police Department is also committed to ensuring the transactions are free of stolen merchandise. With this, the Woodstock Police Department will be available to check any item’s serial number against both the State of Georgia and national databases to ensure every item is clear and not reported as stolen.

Buyers or sellers who want to utilize our transaction safe place program will need to contact our front office between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, in order to setup a meeting time of their choosing at the department. Citizens can contact our front office at 770-592-6030 (option 7). Our officers will also be available after hours for our citizens who were unable to schedule a time with our front office. After hours, our citizens can contact the Cherokee Emergency Dispatch Center at 678-493-4080 and request the assistance of an officer at the department.
 

The Woodstock Police Department is located at:
12453 Highway 92
Woodstock, Georgia 30188
