KPD creates exchange zone downtown

By Andrew Kutzer

Kutztown has created an “exchange zone” for meet-ups involving online purchases and child custody issues in early July.

“It’s there 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It’s well-lit, with a camera right there and it’s being recorded,” said Craig Summers, chief of police. No appointment is needed to use the exchange zone.

The idea for the exchange lots came about after municipalities in Western Pa., and one in Northampton County implemented similar spaces, according to Summers.

Other police departments such as Lower Saucon and Forks Township have set up exchange zones, according to Morning Call and WFMZ articles.

“As the word gets out, hopefully, it’ll be used more,” said Summers.
