Oliva Pinkney, Chief Constable of Hampshire Constabulary, said: “The Eastern Police Investigation Centre means a real step change for policing in Portsmouth and the whole of our Eastern area, with a new building which serves our communities through thoughtful design and excellence in build and function, fully equipped to suit the policing needs of today and importantly the future.”

Michael Lane, Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “This new policing centre delivers on my promise to give this project my focus and priority and it will support my objective to keep us safer. It brings Constabulary colleagues together for more effective and efficient delivery of the policing service.”

The PIC is located on Portsea Island, and serves Portsmouth, Havant, Gosport, Fareham and parts of East Hampshire by providing modern and fit-for-purpose facilities, and a central investigation function. It includes a 36-cell custody suite, support rooms and investigative areas, and will house 430 officers, investigators and staff.

Today, the vast majority of residents contacting the police do so via telephone, via online and other methods. As a result, use of front counter services has declined considerably, as other contact methods are preferred by members of the community.

In an emergency, contact 999, or call 101 in other situations.  You can also visit www.hampshire.police.uk to report a crime, and much more.  If you want to receive crime and community messages about where you live, sign up to www.hampshirealert.co.uk
