Work to refurbish Wellington Police Station began on Monday 8th March. The refurbishments will see the interior of the police station redecorated to provide a modern, fit for purpose facility and will include installation of new flooring and kitchen units.
The enquiry office at Wellington Police Station is currently closed due to COVID-19 so there will be no additional disruption caused to the public as a result of the work being carried out.
The police station will be out of use for officers for three weeks during the renovations but the plans will not affect the number of police officers or PCSOs in the community, who will continue to work as they currently do throughout this period. Police vehicles equipped with Wi-Fi along with personal issue laptops and mobile phones all mean that officers are able to work in an agile way within the community during the refurbishments.
The refurbishment of Wellington police station is welcomed by the team and is a positive step for all residents of Wellington. I hope people see this as a clear testimony of our commitment to policing in the town and the longevity of Wellington continuing to have an operational police station in the heart of its community.
