CROSS COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The Cross County Sheriff's Office has set up a new way to protect their citizens when it comes to online shopping.

According to Sheriff J. R. Smith, people buying and selling things online can be unsafe when it comes down to meeting people to exchange merchandise at questionable locations.

Smith has installed signs at the sheriff's office so people can have a safe meeting place. The location will be under surveillance at all times.

Sheriff Smith said residents should feel free to use the exchange locations anytime.
