Safe Transaction Zone
flower Safe Transaction Zone

SafetyThe Berlin Police Department is proud to announce the designation of a safety zone where citizens can make sales and purchases through sites like Craigslist.

"The safe transaction zones are designed to help protect our citizens as robberies, thefts and scams become more prevalent with online transaction sites," says Chief Michael DeLorenzo.

Safe Transaction Zones have been set up in the lobby and surrounding parking lots of the Berlin Police Headquarters at 59 S. White Horse ...

The announcement comes after a previous investigation where a man was charged in the deaths of a couple whose bodies were found in rural Georgia. They apparently were lured by the suspect through a Craigslist ad with hopes of buying an antique Mustang convertible. The victims, in their 60s, had been shot in the head.

Members of the Berlin Police Department say they will not participate in transactions or act as witnesses. "Our employees are not available for legal advice or allowed to settle disputes between parties involved in transactions occurring in our facility," Chief DeLorenzo said. Transactions involving weapons, drugs and/or drug paraphernalia are barred from the zones.

The lobby of the Berlin Police Department is available 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.

Anyone using the lobby to complete a transaction is asked to notify the police matron. Residents using the facility during the weekend or after hours are encouraged to use the parking lots which are under video surveillance.

To Pet Owners
flower The municipal clerks office is getting a lot of complaints about animal waste on sidewalks and grass near and around sidewalks in many areas of the borough. Realizing that animal owners do not have many areas to walk their pets, we ask that you carry with you the means of disposing of your pets waste. It is very unfair for our community to be subject to this problem and it is very unfair for those of you who are considerate and DO pick up after your animals.

Below is a link put out by the Department of Environmental Protection that we also have posted under our Storm Water Management Site. Please take the time to read this article and please help us keep Berlin clean.
