Minerva PD partners with OfferUp

Published: August 10, 2017 12:00 AM

Minerva PD has recently partnered with OfferUp, a mobile market place for local buyers and sellers. The company offers IOS and Android apps that make selling an item as easy as snapping a picture from a mobile device.

"The ability to partner with the Minerva Police Department allows us to bring a collective and focused effort and investment to the well-being of this community by improving the security of in-person transactions," said Natalie Angelilo, vice president of community at OfferUp. "Our MeetUp Spots program helps serve the much needed purpose of providing an easy and free way to establish a community location that is public, surveilled, well-lit and monitored by the police department. "

"We are offering our department as a secure location for buyers and sellers to meet," said Minerva Police Chief Christopher Miller. "Officers will not take part in the transactions."
