Po­lice front counter to stay open

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

AC­CRING­TON’S new town cen­tre po­lice sta­tion front counter has been saved from clo­sure.

The of­fice on Broad­way was at risk of be­ing shut down just months af­ter a £500,000 move as part of a bid to save £18m by 2020.

Lan­cashire’s Po­lice has con­firmed that ten of its front coun­ters will close but that the Broad­way of­fice will not be among them. It comes a month af­ter the po­lice sta­tion in Great Har­wood was closed as part of cost cut­ting mea­sures.
