Inspector Katherine Willoughby said: “We are moving out of our current Police Station to relocate to a more efficient premises, working in partnership with Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service at Hardley.


No change to service

Inspector Willoughby continued: “Although we are moving, we want to reassure our communities that we will still maintain our patrolling strategy and high visible presence both within the Hythe town centre and across the Waterside.”

The new police office at Hardley Fire Station 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, or call 999 in an emergency.
