From 3rd September, the opening hours of police enquiry offices in Somerset will be changing, following a review of the service across Avon and Somerset. Alongside improvements in the police estate and the need to make significant savings, the changes reflect the low footfall in some areas at certain times of the day.
Our priority is to have enquiry offices across the force area open at the times when our communities need them.
Somerset area commander Supt Mike Prior said: “Next month therewill be some changes to our enquiry offices across Somerset to make sure we are open at the times when we are needed the most and that we continue to be visible in our communities.
We are committed to keeping our neighbourhood police officers based in their local communities.
From 3rd September the enquiry office opening hours in Mendip will be:
Frome: Monday-Friday, 9.30am-5pm
Street: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, 10am-2pm
Wells: Monday-Friday, 10am-6pm
