Kawartha Lakes OPP launched a new initiative to protect those who buy and sell through online websites.
Through Project Safe Trade police designated two parking spaces in the police detachment's parking lot for transactions to safely take place.
Police say the area is a well-lit, public space on Highway 35.
Police hope the initiative deters "unlawful behaviour."
