Following refurbishment, the local police team are returning to their base in Hedge End today.
After a period of refurbishment by the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Estate Change Programme team, Response & Patrol and the Neighbourhood Policing Team are moving back to their normal base this week.
District Commander Chief Inspector Darren Miller said: “I am pleased that the temporary relocation to Eastleigh didn’t affect the service provided, and I’m delighted that the team are able to return Hedge End to work in the heart of the community they are serving in fit for purpose accommodation.”
As a result of the refurbishment, the offices the teams have at Hedge End now provide a long-term flexible working space and improve usability. The team relocated to Eastleigh in May for the works, but this did not affect the service they provide in the area they serve.
The police office at Hedge End 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. The team can be contacted in the usual way via 101, email Eastleigh.Police@hampshire.pnn.police.uk, or call 999 in an emergency.
The Eastleigh-based team are unaffected and will continue to be located in the town.
