Station revamp puts police, PCSOs and detectives all in same place
A REVAMP of Macclesfield police station was given the seal of approval by police chiefs.
Chief Constable Simon Byrne and Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner John Dwyer visited the Brunswick Street building to officially open the refurbished premises.
The changes to the station, which opened in 1974, were made after last summer’s organisational shift which made Macclesfield the central ‘hub’ for Poynton, Wilmslow, Congleton and Knutsford policing units.
It puts detectives, officers and PCSOs in the same room for the first time.
Chief Constable Byrne said: “A good working environment with access to the latest technology helps to make sure our staff are ready to provide an outstanding service. When the new local policing units were introduced it was recognised that we needed to make sure staff had access to information where they need it and when they need it and that they share intelligence as a team to get the best results for victims.
Commissioner Dwyer said: “It was great to see the work that has gone into remodelling the station to ensure it is fit for purpose.”
