Important Update on Apex and Cary Swap-Spots

The recent case of a man gone missing from the Cameron Village area of Raleigh after reportedly trying to sell his vehicle to an unknown Craigslist buyer, prompted us to contact the Apex and Cary Police Department for an update on their “swap-spot” programs. 

In response to our inquiry, and also to general concerns about social distancing and safety when exchanging payment for goods and services between private parties in our communities, officials with both police departments indicated that there are designated areas with marked parking spaces located directly in front of their police facilities which are monitored, 24/7, with video surveillance.

It has also been advised that anyone meeting in-person for the exchange of goods should wear a mask, practice proper social distancing, and adhere to all other health precautions.  And h
aving their meeting spot outdoors and limiting the number of people at exchanges, are great benefits in this respect.

Anyone can take full advantage of either of these swap-spots and these programs are not limited to just those who reside in Apex and Cary.
