  • The new facility will launch on Tuesday 13 April.

  • It will be open three days a week.

  • The service will be run by volunteers who will provide advice and information to members of the public.

A new police information point is due to open in Bishop’s Stortford to provide advice to members of the public.

Situated at the existing police station in Basbow Lane, the new facility will launch on Tuesday 13 April and will be open every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, between 10am and 1pm.

The desk will be manned by specially trained Police Support Volunteers, who will be able to give advice to members of public on a range of subjects and direct them to any relevant agencies for further assistance.

Neighbourhood Inspector Chris Hunt said: “We’re really pleased that we’re able to open this facility to members of the public, thanks to the dedication of our fantastic Police Support Volunteers.

“While the service will not be run as an operational front desk for reporting crime, it will provide an additional resource in the town and an opportunity for people to get face to face advice. It will also mean that operational police officers can continue to focus on frontline duties.”

You can continue to report crime and information online, speak to an operator in our Force Communications Room via our online web chat or call the non-emergency number 101.

Alternatively, you can stay 100% anonymous by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their untraceable online form (opens in a new window).
