If you need a safe place for an in-person exchange of goods, the Buffalo State University Police Department has established two “Safe Trade Zones.” You can find the first Safe Trade Zone in the front lobby of the University Police Department, located within Chase Hall. The second Safe Trade Zone is in the Campbell Student Union across from the Information Desk. Safe Trade Zones are designated by signs and will be well-lit at all hours of the day. Here the public can trade legal items or complete internet sales or exchanges in a safe atmosphere promoted by our police-protected and camera-monitored environment.
