Shoppers' Police Station To Close
Thames Valley Police have announced their police station in Milton Keynes' Midsummer Place shopping centre is going to close.
Neighbourhood police officers and police staff currently based at the station in Saxon Gate East will relocate to the main Milton Keynes police station on Thursday 12 January 2012.
The Midsummer Place police station will be closed to the public from 4pm on Tuesday 10 January, and people needing to access police services will be redirected to the main police station in North Row, Witan Gate East.
Supt Nikki Ross, Commander of Milton Keynes Local Police Area said: "In the light of budget cuts, we are unable to justify the cost of keeping Midsummer Place station open, when we have a much larger police station just a short distance away.
"The main police station in Milton Keynes town centre is open 24 hours, seven days a week, and provides a full front counter service, compared with shorter opening hours and a limited service at Midsummer Place.
"We have looked at a number of options, including cost reductions and partnership funding, in an attempt to keep Midsummer Place station open, but we have been unable to secure the necessary agreements in the current economic climate."
