SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - San Diego Police are opening new locations for San Diegans to conduct business safely.

Each San Diego Police division will have a Designated Online Transaction Space (D.O.T.S.) where carrying out online or private sales and exchanges of goods. The space will be in view of the station’s front door and in a well-lit area.

“Online platforms have become an epicenter for scam artists and predators looking to take advantage of innocent people. In a world filled with online transaction uncertainty, D.O.T.S. offers certainty. I am pleased to see my pilot program expand citywide. You truly cannot put a price tag on peace of mind,” stated Councilmember Chris Cate.

The first D.O.T.S. was created more than two years ago at SDPD Northeastern Division in Rancho Peñasquitos.
