Safe Exchange Zones

Safe Exchange Zones

The Richmond Police Department now offers two Safe Exchange Zones where you can meet and transact your business in well-lit areas with 24-hour video recording.

The zones are in the parking lot of two precincts:
Second Precinct, 177 E. Belt Boulevard
Fourth Precinct, 2219 Chamberlayne Avenue

Since a video recording can only assist detectives in attempting to identify a suspect after an incident occurs, the public should continue to observe safety precautions. Indeed, a Safe Exchange Zone sign at each location indicates that the Department assumes no responsibility or liability for transactions, damages or injury, nor does the city of Richmond. Due to the varied schedules of precinct officers, the Department cannot guarantee an officer will be on the property at all times.
