Bishops Waltham Police return to base

17 January 2019

Following refurbishment, the local police team are returning to their base in Bishops Waltham on Thursday 17 January.

After a period of refurbishment by the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Estate Change Programme team, the Neighbourhood Policing Team and Country Watch Team are moving back to their normal base this week.

District Commander Chief Inspector Mark Lynch said:

“I am pleased that the team are able to return to Bishops Waltham, and that the service they provide was not affected by their temporary move to Fareham.”

As a result of the refurbishment, the offices the teams have at Bishops Waltham now provide a long-term flexible working space and improve usability.  The team relocated to Fareham in September for the works, but this did not affect the service they provide in the area they serve.

The police office at Bishops Waltham will not be open to the public, but the Neighbourhood Policing Team will continue to be based in and will be out working in the heart of the local community as they always have been.

Contact your local policing team

The team can be contacted in the usual way via 101, email winchester.rural.police@hampshire.pnn.police.uk, or call 999 in an emergency.

The Fareham-based team are unaffected and will continue to be located in the town.
