In an effort to better protect the citizens of Lorain County, the Lorain Police Department is participating in the county-wide Transaction Safe Zone program and welcomes the public to our department to show, inspect, or purchase property that is for sale through e-commerce sites like Craig’s List in order to close their online transactions in a safer way.
