I have bought and sold things from people on Facebook or Craigslist, but I never give them the address to my house. I always make them meet me in a very public place like a gas station or busy parking lot.

Had I known that Sioux Falls' finest had a place for this I would have gone there all along.

The Sioux Falls Police Department tweeted a couple of photos showing off their "safe zone" for making transactions with people you met online. The pair of parking spots is located downtown in front of the Law Enforcement Center at 320 W 4th St.

The location is under 24-hour surveillance.
