Police Stations

June 29, 2011 · Posted in Crime & Policing · Comment 

The police’s top priority is to keep their officers out on the street and working with their local communities. The police have been asked to save £52m by 2015. As a result, the police are reducing the hours that residents can just drop into police stations. They are offering more pre-planned appointments instead. In due course, people will be able to book appointments online or over the phone. Rest assured that even when the front counter service is not open the police station is still fully staffed and functioning normally. Horsham Police station is now open Monday to Friday 10am to 2pm and 3pm to 6pm.
