Chester-le-Street Police Station Refurbishment Complete
Durham Police and Crime Commissioner Ron Hogg has announced that the refurbishment of Chester-le-Street Police Station is now complete.
Mr Hogg said: "We have spent approximately £750,000 on refurbishing the police station and making it fit for use. It is a clear statement that the station is here to stay to serve the local community. It will house a number of police officers and police staff who together, continue to keep the public safe.
"The station will also house a response team, local crime investigation team and intelligence staff as well as the local neighbourhood policing team. There is also a front counter service available from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. Monday to Friday where the public can go in and request services, as well as out-of-hours telephone access to the control room.
"There was never any intention that the police station was going to close and that the refurbishment we have carried out are part of a wider programme of building improvements which looked to make better use of space and saves money."
