Nottinghamshire Police have assured residents than an “operational police station” will remain in West Bridgford.
Rushcliffe Borough Council announced on Tuesday that they were looking at the potential marketing of the adjacent Lutterell Hall site in West Bridgford and stated that Nottinghamshire Police plan to vacate the police station, which also serves as the council’s West Bridgford contact point.
Chief constable, Craig Guildford, said: “We’re continuing to explore all our estate options across the force as we seek to maintain and increase frontline officer numbers.
“No final decisions have yet been made. However, be very assured that I will always want to have an operational police station in West Bridgford.
“We want to ensure we are making the best use of all the buildings we occupy, maximising our efficiency and effectiveness while still allowing local policing to be delivered from the local area by local officers.”
Nottinghamshire Police have also said they have discussed ideas about a collaboration with the fire service and local authority.
Chief constable Guildford added: “With the rollout of mobile technology our building requirements continue to change.
“I often describe this as ‘less square feet, more on the beat’.
“As part of our continued commitment to collaboration we are discussing options with the fire service and local authorities to ensure we are providing the best possible service to the public whilst maximising our efficiency.”
