Batavia Police designate secure space for completing online transactions
Written by WBTA STAFF on January 25, 2018
Following the arrest of two local men accused of setting up a phony Craigslist ad to lure in robbery victims, the Batavia police have established a secure location looking to prevent potentially dangerous transactions.
Featured guest on WBTA’s Main and Center program this morning, Police Chief Shawn Heubusch said the safe space is located in the back vestibule of the Police Station.
Chief Heubusch also announced Batavia’s SafeCam Program, which allows city residents to register their own security cameras with police.
The cameras will be added to a database that will assist police in crime prevention and investigation.
The program does not give police any control over privately owned cameras but simply is a reference for law enforcement to see who may have captured a crime on video.
