Immediate Release:


New Safe Exchange Zone Opened by the Sheriff's Office

Scott County-Working in cooperation with the Scott County Commissioners, the Scott County Sheriff's Office has created a "Safe Exchange Zone," for the exchange of children when child custody disputes are involved. The "Safe Exchange Zone" can also be used by folks who sell items on social media and need a safe place to meet the person they are either buying from or selling to. The "Safe Exchange Zone's" uses are really unlimited.

The "Safe Exchange Zone" features a marked designated area directly across (west) of the Scott County Sheriff's Office.  The "Safe Exchange Zone" has fully functional recording cameras and these cameras are monitored 24 Hours a day.  Once you get to the area of the Sheriff's Office you can follow the signs to the "Safe Exchange Zone". 

Sheriff Goodin stated, "This is just another thing that we can do to help our citizens feel and actually be safer". Sheriff Goodin also wanted to thank the Scott County Commissioners for allowing the Sheriff's Office to build the "Safe Exchange Zone" in their parking lot.
