Po­lice sta­tions set for huge

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FOCUS -

“If we do have vol­un­teers I think it should be open 24 hours, there would be no rea­son for it not to. I’d cer­tainly put my­self down to vol­un­teer.”

Mr Lacey also be­lieves that in­stead of Che­sham po­lice sta­tion be­ing re­placed, Amer­sham should be merged with it.

He said: “Che­sham is the third largest town in Bucks with a pop­u­la­tion of 22,000 peo­ple.

“Amer­sham is a lot smaller and they’ve got a lovely po­lice sta­tion. I can’t un­der­stand why th­ese things al­ways hap­pen to Che­sham.

“Why can’t Amer­sham sta­tion move to Che­sham and we have one big one here? We used to have a big po­lice sta­tion with cells, CID and a mag­is­trates’ court ev­ery Wed­nes­day, and what have we got now? It’s ridicu­lous.”
