Police front offices to close by March

The closure of three front offices will take place at the end of January as part of a series of measures aimed at saving the force more than £3 million.

The front desk at Acocks Green, Moseley, Sparkhill (Birmingham East LPU) will close to the public on 31 January. 

Officers and staff will continue to work from the stations, providing the same level of service as they currently do.

Further front offices will close on 28 February:

Foleshill (Coventry LPU) 

Bluebell Centre (Solihull LPU)

Castle Vale, Kingstanding (Birmingham North LPU)

Aston (Birmingham West and Central LPU)

Edgbaston (Birmingham South LPU)

Halesowen, Stourbridge (Dudley LPU)

Aldridge, Willenhall (Walsall LPU)

Wednesfield (Wolverhampton LPU)

Tipton, Wednesbury, Old Hill (Sandwell LPU)

Remaining front offices set for closure will take place by autumn this year. 

Ten front counters will remain open; nine from 8am to 10pm and one for 24 hours a day.  

The closures follow analysis which showed there was little demand from the public during the evening and overnight and most people wanted more modern ways of contacting the police.
