The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) created the safe exchange program to provide peace of mind and a safe place for parents and children to conduct child exchanges for court ordered visitation. The safe exchange sites are also safe places to meet to for online purchases such as Craig's List.
These locations have been identified as being under constant recorded video surveillance and are available for use for safe exchanges. The recordings of these exchanges are available in the event there is illegal activity. The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office safe exchange program is called “safeX”.
CCSO and our partnering businesses and agencies are providing this service Free of Charge to the citizens of Cleveland County because we all care about children and their safety.
Anyone can find a safeX location by going to www.ccso-ok.us or downloading the CCSO mobile App, and clicking on the safeX program icon. Once there, you will find a map and a listing of all safeX locations. You can also look for the X painted on the ground of local parking spots throughout Cleveland County. If you see one, it is a safeX location.
Please be aware that CCSO and our partnering businesses and agencies will not “pick sides” or “be personally involved” in any domestic proceedings or pending civil litigation. A bad parental exchange involving a child can do long lasting harm and create issues for the child for years to come. The only desire of CCSO and our Partners is to protect children from harm, minimize the effect of violence and fear, and ensure that adults having difficulty in dealing with their relationships do not place children in the middle of their adult issues.
In the event a crime occurs during a child exchange, CCSO and partners will do the following:
In the event that a crime occurs, you will need to immediately file a report with local Law Enforcement. The recorded video will only be able to be retrieved for up to 10 days from the date of the child exchange.
