    Operation Safe Sale:

    The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is offering the use of its four patrol district office parking lots for residents looking for safe spaces to conduct transactions arranged online.  Dubbed "Operation Safe Sale," the program is a response to safety threats for those engaging in cash transactions involving items advertised on the Web or other classified ads.  While there has not been any recent increase in these types of robberies, there continues to be a sustained amount throughout the county.

    Currently, the parking lots are often used for parental exchange of children involved in civil custody issues; it only makes sense to offer up the parking lots for these Web or classified ad transactions. After all, the parking lots are well-lit and offer videotape coverage.

    The four patrol districts "Safe Sale" locations are as follows;

    Patrol District 1
    14102 N.20th Street
    Tampa, Florida
