The Easton Police Department is setting up an e-commerce safety zones near the police station to give people a known place to complete transactions with peace of mind. Several departments in the Greater Danbury area have established similar safety zones in an effort to reduce the chance of fraud, theft, robberies, or violence.
In Easton, the proposed location is the parking lot across from police headquarters on Morehouse Road. Security cameras are focused on the lot because it is parking for the library.
A sign has been ordered. Residents will be urged to call police to let them know of planned transactions so the camera can be focused in the area where the sign will be placed.
