Pfennig Lane, or in the parking lot.

“The Justice Center parking lot is under 24-hour video surveillance and well lit,” Sergeant Mayo Neyland said. “With officers regularly coming in and out of the Justice Center, we are providing residents a safer location for online transaction sales. Residents can enter our public facility lobby during office hours or use the parking lot after hours for online sale exchanges or purchases.
