The lobby of the Marquette University Police Department is available as a safe place for completing transactions of items bought and sold online. For your safety, all transactions that originate in online marketplaces such as Craigslist or Facebook should be conducted at your local police stations.
The Marquette University Police Department is located at 749 N. 16th St., between Wisconsin Ave. and Wells St.
A few specific safety tips to remember:
- Agree to meet a buyer or seller at a local police department only.
- Complete the transaction during daylight hours.
- Make sure a friend or family member is aware of the transaction details.
- Be extra cautious when buying/selling valuable items.
- Only use cash or money orders to complete your transactions.
- Trust your instincts. If it sounds like a scam it probably is.
