The City of Alabaster provides ‘safe trade zones' at the Municipal Annex, located behind the police department. These green striped parking stalls are designed to be a place where individuals can conduct business associated with online sales (e.g. Craigslist, etc.). These stalls are available any time, video recorded 24/7, but are not manned live by the Alabaster Police Department.
As with all transactions and interaction with someone unknown, take appropriate caution when providing personal information, etc.
