Plans are being finalised a new police station in Dovercourt.
The plans would see the old station commander’s house at the Essex County Fire and Rescue Service site in Fronks Road demolished and a new 21st century police station built.
Deputy Chief Constable Andy Prophet said:
“This is a fantastic plan.
“It is part of our ongoing collaborative work with Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and will see a new community police station in Dovercourt.
“Essex Police is committed to maintaining a strong visible presence in communities across Essex to help in our mission to prevent and tackle crime.”
Deputy Chief Fire Officer Moira Bruin said:
“We have worked in partnership with Essex Police on these plans.
“Being able to co-locate with us in the unused space at Dovercourt Fire Station is a great opportunity to maintain a police presence in the community.”
Phillipa Brent-Isherwood, Chief Executive at the office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, said:
“The new facilities will help the police and fire and rescue service deliver the best possible service to the communities they serve, making it even easier for them to work together to create safe and secure communities where everybody can prosper.”
