A Better, Safer Way to Conduct Your Online, In-Person Transactions

LPPD Safe TransactionsIn a proactive effort to safeguard our citizens, the La Plata Police Department is welcoming the public to the police department to close their online transactions in a safer way. The public can take advantage of the department's lobby or parking lot to meet and handle their online transactions. In addition, La Plata Police officers will be available to stand by to increase both a buyer's and seller's sense of security. Along with our commitment to the personal safety of both the buyer and seller, the La Plata Police Department is also committed to ensuring the transactions are free of stolen merchandise. With this La Plata police officers will be available to check serial numbers against the State of Maryland and the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) computer database to ensure every item is clear and not wanted or stolen.
