Police station ‘relocations’ closures by stealth
The Government is pulling the wool over people’s eyes by claiming 24 police stations have been ‘relocated’ when staff have been transferred to the main local station instead of opening a new office – creating closures by stealth, says Labour’s Police spokesperson Stuart Nash.
“In total 30 small local police stations have shut their doors since 2011/12. In 24 cases Police say they have been relocated. The truth is they have been shifted into existing offices and generally the police officers are working from the main local station.
