Merrimack police provide safe place for exchanging children, items

The Merrimack Police Department is now providing two designated two parking spaces in the front parking lot of the police station dedicated to exchanging children or items. Both spaces are under 24-hour sur­veillance with video recording.

Police encourage the public to use the spaces when meeting an unknown person from whom you may have purchased some­thing online. Doing this not only provides peace of mind, it also deters those who may have ill intent.

These spaces are also for video surveil­lance during child custody exchanges.

For more information, call Lt. Denise Roy at 424-3774.
