AS PART of a review of police stations Avon and Somerset Constabulary will be changing the opening hours of its enquiry offices.

The changes will be implemented from Monday, September 1 as part of the police’s estates strategy which involves changes to police stations over the next five years.

Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Nikki Watson said: “Our enquiry offices are a vital channel for members of public to interact with us and we want to make sure we are providing the best service to meet the demand we face.

“We have spoken to partners, staff and members of public and we were consistently told our opening hours can be confusing and it would be simpler if we removed alternating patterns and instead open the same hours every week.

“We will be making changes to our police stations in the coming months and years so there will be further changes, but it was important for us to provide a simpler service for our communities as soon as possible.

The largest police stations, including Patchway, will open seven days a week from 8am until 8pm whilst smaller stations, which includes Chipping Sodbury, will be open Monday to Friday 10am until 6pm but will be closed for lunch between 1.30pm and 2.15pm.
