Johnstown Police Department Establishes Safe Zone for Online Transactions

Johnstown Police Department is establishing a Safe Zone for Online Transactions. The program encourages the public to use a “Safe Zone” (the Police Department – 430 S. Parish Ave.) for online transactions that require meetings between strangers. The parking lot or lobby can be used Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Johnstown Police Department cannot guarantee the quality or authenticity of the items purchased online, and the department will not be involved in the business of these transactions. The Safe Zone offers peace of mind knowing the areas are under camera surveillance 24 hours a day, and a person is working at the front desk lobby area during regular business hours.
