Norwich Township and the City of Hilliard offers residents a designated Safe Exchange Zone. This zone is located in the front parking lot of the Safety Services Building located at 5181 Northwest Parkway. The Safe Exchange Zone serves as a space where residents can conduct online transactions or child custody exchanges without the fear of being victimized. It is a well-lit area, available every day year-round, and under 24-hour surveillance.
When conducting private transactions, the Hilliard Division of Police recommends that you tell a friend where you are going, use caution to avoid being a victim of a scam, and making the transaction during daylight hours. If someone is not willing to come to the Safety Services Building, it may be a sign the transaction is not legitimate.
