Answered By:

In Brent there are 2 front counters:-

  • Wembley open 24 hour/365 days a year
  • Kilburn Police Station which is open Monday to Friday, 9-5. Kilburn is one of 15 stations identified as part of the public access consultation as not being suitable in the long-term. The front counter will not be closed until an alternative facility is in place.

 

There are also 5 contact points open Wednesday and Thursday 7-8pm and Saturday 2-3pm:

  • Station Rd Harlesden
  • Harlesden Police Station
  • Willesden Green
  • Waterloo Road

MPS are also looking to provide an additional contact point in the North of the Borough to ensure an even spread of contact points.

 

In Harrow there is a front counter at South Harrow Police Station open 24 hours 365 days a year.

 

There are four contact points are open Wednesday and Thursday 7-8pm and Saturday 2-3pm:
