Walnut/Diamond Bar-Buying and selling online has become a new trend within social media sites, internet sites, and new apps that have been created. However, reports of thefts have raised an issue with Walnut/Diamond Bar Sheriff’s Department.  Therefore, the Sheriff’s Department has created an “exchange zone” for residents to meet safely while selling or buying an item from someone they met online. The “exchange zone” is clearly marked for either party involved.

Walnut/Diamond Sheriff’s department would like to also note that they “cannot act as official witnesses to any transactions, will not give legal advice, and will not settle civil disputes related to any transaction,” according to a Sheriff’s Department News Release.
