The Madison County Sheriff is offering a couple of locations at the department's facility in Edwardsville as a safe place for people that buy and sell over the internet. The Internet purchase exchange locations are located on the parking lots adjacent to the building. Both lots are under 24-hour video surveillance.
Sheriff John Lakin tells The Big Z the idea for this is a result of so many more people doing their buying and selling online.

He says there is no need to call ahead to let them know you are coming. You can just show up and complete the transaction.
