Police move into Frodsham Fire Station

FRODSHAM Police Station is now located at the fire station on Ship Street.
The facility was officially opened by Police and Crime Commissioner David Keane, in the presence of Cllr Stef Nelson, deputy chairman of Cheshire Fire Authority, Chief Fire Officer Paul Hancock and Acting Chief Constable Janette McCormick.
Members of the public were consulted before the decision to move the police station into the fire station and of 358 Frodsham residents surveyed, 95 per cent agreed the relocation was appropriate.
Mr Keane said: “I am delighted with this shared base for police and fire in Frodsham. Working together will reduce operating costs for both organisations and most definitely improve joint working between police officers and firefighters.”
Frodsham Fire Station is staffed by on-call firefighters who respond to emergencies by an alerter system. It was identified as a suitable location for a joint police and fire base with the space and facilities to accommodate the same services for officers, staff and members of the public that wer previously delivered at the police station.
Mr Hancock said: This collaboration will not change the way that Frodsham firefighters or police officers respond to emergencies. This cost-effective move brings operational staff together under one roof and will allow for savings to be made by both organisations without affecting the level of service we currently provide.”
