The Merritt RCMP have created a safe exchange zone outside of the Merritt RCMP Detachment to give residents a safe area to complete online transactions, as well as a location to transfer children between parents or guardians.

Part of the RCMP's Recruit Field Training Program is that new officers have to complete a project within the community they serve. Cst. Carly Gerein decided she wanted to create a safe exchange zone for Merritt residents to complete online transactions, as well as a location to transfer children between parents or guardians. Cst. Gerein had the sign created locally and with the assistance from the City of Merritt Public Works Department, had it installed in front of the Merritt RCMP Detachment.

Residents are encouraged to use the safe exchange zone between the hours of 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday.
