New opening hours for Herefordshire police stations

 

NEW opening hours are now in effect for police station public service counters across Herefordshire.

 

Thirty-one counters across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Worcestershire now have a wider range of opening hours, including evenings and weekends.

 

Chief Superintendent Trevor Albutt said: “The change to public service counter opening times will not affect local policing and all police stations will remain operational. We want to make sure we offer a good service to the public and be as accessible as possible. Visiting your local police station service counter in person is not the only way to get in touch with us.â€

 

As part of the review West Mercia Police carried out extensive research, and spoke to other forces, ensuring where opening hours are reduced alternative services are provided including telephone links outside police stations and information stands providing information on crime prevention.

 

Every Local Policing Team can be contacted by e-mail, voicemail, at local events and surgeries, Partners and Communities Together meetings and via diary appointments which are available at the police station.

 

The police can be contacted 24-hours a day, seven days a week by calling 101 for non-emergencies and 999 in an emergency, as well as by logging on to www.westmercia.police.uk or their Facebook and Twitter.

 

To check who your local policing team is visit the force website www.westmercia.police.uk

Hereford:

Monday - Saturday 8.00am - 8.00pm

Sunday and Bank Holidays 10.00am - 4.00pm

 

South Wye:

While new opening hours have been announced for police stations across Herefordshire, South Wye as yet to implement them. I spoke to PC Bradley this morning and he confirms that he has spoken to his superiors about this statement which is misleading as South Wye station has yet to appoint a front desk clerk so for the time being this will not apply to South Wye.
