Safe Exchange Zone

Exchange Zone Parking

The Grand Prairie Police Department is now offering three locations for online exchanges and child custody arrangements.

The “Exchange Zone” spaces are well-lit and under 24-hour surveillance, giving residents and commuters a safe place to purchase or exchange property from sites such as Craigslist, Facebook and OfferUp. In addition to online purchases, we also invite blended families to utilize the Exchange Zone for child custody arrangements.
