The Pinecam Board of Directors received this press release from the Platte Canyon Area Chamber of Commerce:

March 23rd 2015
Press Release
There was a horrifying case in Longmont last week where women answering a Craigslist ad was attacked, cut open and had her baby removed. This has brought to light significant safety issues for the public.

As a result Law Enforcement agencies across the nation are working with citizens to offer their buildings and grounds to people to conduct Craigslist business.

The Park County Sheriff’s would like to join other agencies in offering the Sheriff’s Office parking lot in Fairplay for use as a “safe haven” for buyers and sellers. Staff won’t oversee or participate in transactions, but we will be close and our parking lot is monitored by cameras.

When answering a Craigslist ad please conduct business in the day time. Use a public place. Another word of advice would be to tell someone where you are going, and who you are meeting with. Make sure to take your cell phone.

If you are purchasing firearms one recommendation would be to go to a licensed gun shop and remember under Colorado law, a background check is necessary for the sale of firearms. There is a state charge and the gun dealer may charge a small fee for this service. This would be a safe way to transfer firearms. Make appointments in advance.
Stay safe Colorado.
