Police departments open parking lots for Craigslist transactions

(KFVS) -

Internet safety is an issue becoming more and more prevalent as technology develops.

To aid in that safety more than 100 police departments nationwide now provide space in their lobbies or parking lots where people who've made deals to sell merchandise online can know police are only feet away if something goes wrong.

The practice has greatly expanded since the Craigslist killings were carried out a few years ago.
