If you've ever had to exchange an item you've bought or sold in a safe place, High River now has an answer.

The High River RCMP and the Town of High River have partnered to create a safe location.

It's right in the parking lot of the High River RCMP just off 12th Avenue at 1104 14 Street SE.

It's also a good location for exchanges to be made for child custody between parents.

While the detachment is only open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, they do have a telephone at the front door to call if you need any help.

In a media release, High River RCMP Staff Sgt. Greg Wiebe said, “This initiative is an excellent example of the Town of High River and the local detachment working together to enhance the safety of our residents,” says Staff Sergeant Greg Wiebe.

The security camera will not be actively monitored although the location is under video surveillance.
