Po­lice sta­tion front coun­ters run by vol­un­teers

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

VOL­UN­TEERS have been help­ing po­lice in Ruis­lip and North­wood to keep their front of­fices open for longer.

The front counter at Ruis­lip Po­lice Sta­tion, in The Oaks, is open Wed­nes­day to Thurs­day from 7pm to 8pm, and on Satur­days from 2pm to 3pm.

Neigh­bours have been giv­ing up half a day once or twice a week to run the counter from 10am to 5pm Mon­day to Fri­day, and from 10am to 1pm on Satur­days.

They also run the front counter at North­wood Po­lice Sta­tion, in Mur­ray Road, be­tween 11am and 1pm from Mon­day to Wed­nes­day.

In­spec­tor Rob Bryan, of Hilling­don Po­lice, said: “Our po­lice open­ing hours are set.

“The vol­un­teers of­fer ac­cess to a front counter above and beyond those hours, which is a great ser­vice for lo­cal peo­ple in Ruis­lip and North­wood.

“I un­der­stand the hours are limited, and on oc­ca­sions the vol­un­teers are un­able to fill a par­tic­u­lar shift.

“Nev­er­the­less I want to ac­knowl­edge the bril­liant job they do open­ing th­ese front coun­ters for ad­di­tional hours.”
