Question

The Metropolitan Police document 'Local Police Estate and Public Access' for Croydon on the MOPAC website lists the Front Counters as Croydon Police Station and Windmill Road Custody Centre. However as of 3 July only Croydon Police Station is listed on the Metropolitan Police website. This means that there appears to be only one public access point for the police for the whole borough. When will the front counter at Windmill Road Custody Centre open?

Written response from the Mayor 09 September 2013

Ensuring that the estate in Croydon is fit for the LPM has been a complex piece of work, involving the closure and sale of several large buildings. Croydon custody centre (Berin Underwood House) requires some remedial building work to ensure that the new front counter is of an appropriate standard. It will be open no later than the week beginning October 7th in line with the roll out of the LPM in Croydon and the opening of the contact points in Croydon.
