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 video recorded but are not manned directly by the Alabaster police department. These stalls are available for use and video recorded 24/7.
As with all transactions and interaction with someone unknown, take
appropriate caution when providing personal information, etc. If you
feel more comfortable, feel free to visit the Alabaster Police
Department lobby, which is directly across the tracks from the Annex.
