Riverwoods Police Partners with OfferUp on MeetUp Spots

July/August 2017

The Riverwoods Police Department is participating in OfferUp’s MeetUp Spots program. The program will help eliminate the need for two strangers to exchange items at a home or residence. Having a designated public space to conduct a transaction can help deter criminal intent and activity.

Exchanges can be conducted on camera, 24/7, in the Riverwoods Police Department parking lot by the building entrance or inside the entrance vestibule. Exchanges can also be made in the lobby M-F, 8:30am to 3:00pm, when the Records Section is open.

“Our ability to partner with the Riverwoods Police Department allows us to bring a collective and focused effort and investment to the well-being of the Riverwoods Community by improving the security of in-person transactions,” said Natalie Angelillo, VP of Community at OfferUp. “Our MeetUp Spots program helps serve the much needed purpose of providing an easy and free way to establish a community location that is public, surveilled, well lit, and monitored by the police department. OfferUp is proud to have a partner in Riverwoods to support our commitment to building trust in communities throughout the country.”
