Great idea, but how will sta­tion be used?

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

RE: Search for site for new po­lice sta­tion (Ad­ver­tiser, Oc­to­ber 8) DE­LIGHTED to hear Thames Val­ley Po­lice are at last tak­ing ac­tion on a new Ger­rards Cross Po­lice Sta­tion fol­low­ing the with­drawal of their plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion some two years ago ( ref­er­ence as above). The rea­son for the with­drawal, be­lieve, was partly be­cause South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil was not sat­is­fied with the ap­pli­ca­tion, due to the very limited num­ber of hours Thames Val­ley Po­lice in­tended to man the sta­tion on such a prime High Street lo­ca­tion. Their con­cern was un­der­stand­able. It is there­fore im­por­tant for the chief con­sta­ble and/or our po­lice com­mis­sioner to ad­vise us ex­actly how they in­tend to use the sta­tion, the num­ber of hours it will be manned, and full de­tails of the ser­vices it will pro­vide to the res­i­dents of Ger­rards Cross.

The op­por­tu­nity for res­i­dents to re­spond to their pro­pos­als would be wel­come, and then per­haps it would be time to con­sider what would be an ap­pro­pri­ate site for the po­lice sta­tion.
