Sheriff Diggs is pleased to announce that the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office now has a dedicated Safe Exchange Zone. The location of the space is in our parking lot right in front of the Public Safety Building at 301 Goodwin Neck Road. The designated zone is under 24-hour surveillance and allows the public to make purchases and exchange transactions in a monitored area rather than conducting their exchanges at private residences.
When using the Safe Exchange Zone please keep in mind that deputies will not be present or assist with any transactions. The exchange of drugs, alcohol, and other illegal items is not permitted. The Safe Exchange Zone is meant for person-to-person transactions. Property may not be dropped off and left unattended.
Sheriff Diggs said, “This is a proactive effort to safeguard our citizens. These zones are excellent locations to conduct your transactions especially with the uncertainty of meeting an unknown person."
