Answer for Unsuitable Police Stations (3)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The following criteria were used to identify the 15 police stations identified as being are unsuitable for longer term use:-

• the buildings cannot easily be adapted to meet operational requirements or • the infrastructure is beyond economic repair or the size of the building or • the site on which is sits cannot be adapted to accommodate future operational teams.

For these 15 stations alternative facilities will be provided in a nearby location, offering the same public access and deployment facilities.
