The Batesville Police Department recently created a safe place for those looking to exchange items purchased online.

According to Batesville Police Chief Alan Cockrill, they've made space for that Internet exchange location in the parking lot of their police department.

The spot is constantly monitored by surveillance video.

Chief Cockrill told Region 8 News that they have one camera monitoring the area right now and are working on getting another installed soon.

They invite anyone who makes a purchase online to make their exchange at the police department to help stay safe.
