Internet Purchase Exchange Location

The Limerick Township Police Department is happy to announce a new initiative for residents regarding safe online sales transactions. With the increase in crimes associated with online purchases, we understand that residents feel hesitant to give someone out their home or work address. Using the Internet Purchase Exchange Location is easy. You do not have to notify the police department of your intent to use the location. Just make sure that you conduct your transaction in the immediate area of the posted sign.

Designated parking spaces, within our public parking lot, are assigned to complete exchanges generated from online sales. The area will be monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by surveillance cameras and will be located just steps from the Limerick Township Police Department.

Disclaimer: The Limerick Township Police Department assumes no liability whatsoever for those using the zone for conducting such transactions.
