Riverwoods Police Partners with OfferUp on MeetUp Spots
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.”
