Marlborough's new Police 'Touch Down Point' in George Lane Car Park officially opens

Wiltshire Police and Crime Commissioner Angus Macpherson, Marlborough Mayor Cllr Mervyn Hall and Acting Inspector Pete Foster of the East Wilts Community Policing Team at this morning's opening of the new Touch Down PointWiltshire Police and Crime Commissioner Angus Macpherson, Marlborough Mayor Cllr Mervyn Hall and Acting Inspector Pete Foster of the East Wilts Community Policing Team at this morning's opening of the new Touch Down PointAt lunchtime today - Monday 30 September - Marlborough's new Police 'Touch Down Point' in the George Lane Car Park was declared formally open.

 

Wiltshire Police and Crime Commissioner Angus Macpherson and Marlborough's Mayor Cllr Mervyn Hall, with acting Inspector Pete Foster of East Wiltshire Community Policing Team attended a short and informal ceremony to open the Centre.  No ribbon, not even a strip of 'Police - Do Not Cross' tape in sight to cut, just a note that it is now in operation.

 

The new 'Touch Down Point' isn't a direct replacement for the old Police Station nearby in George Lane.  It's purpose will be for members of the public to be able to report incidents and crimes directly, providing a personal face rather to talk to than the impersonal telephone or online contact, whilst also offering a place for Police Officers visiting Marlborough to use as a base when here.  

 

There is a front desk, office suite and also an interview room so that any Marlborough issues can be addressed here.  It wil be open on Mondays and Fridays between 09:00 and 17:00, and Wednesdays between 09:00 and 12:30.

 

It will be manned by specialist Enquiry Officers from the Crime and Communications Centre and Supervisor Joe Beattie was on hand to explain the purpose of the Touch Down Point, whilst noting that he expected that it's more central location would mean that it will be used by more people than the former Police Station.  "Reporting burglaries, traffic incidents, accidents, thefts - anything that members of the public need to contact the Police about" he said.

 

The former Police Station in George Lane will be decomissioned soon and when asked about it's future use PCC Angus Macpherson replied that "it will be offered to the public sector first" adding that it would only be sold on privately if there were no public sector interest.
