The Toms River Police Department has established a Safe Exchange Zone for our residents in the parking lot of the police department located at 255 Oak Ave, Toms River, NJ. The two parking spots are located along the building and clearly marked off with green striping and posted signs.

The purpose of the Safe Exchange Zone it to add a layer of security to the exchange of online transactions from websites such as Craig’s List, EBay, LetGo, and other online marketplaces as well as private sales and safe child custody exchanges.

Toms River Township employees will not act as witness or be part of any transaction. Our Safe Exchange Zone is under 24 hour video surveillance and is open to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Although the area is well-lit, we encourage transactions during daylight when possible.

The exchange of weapons, controlled dangerous substances, or controlled dangerous substance paraphernalia is illegal and not permitted on our property.
