New Police Station in Coalville

Building work to construct a new police station in Coalville will start in March 2017. Leicestershire Police and Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service have agreed to share the fire station in Coalville. This follows a period of consultation with the community and partners about the best options for the existing police station, as it needs millions of pounds worth of investment to refurbish it and currently costs 125,000 of public money every year to run. This should take seven months, aiming to be moving in around October or November. The Police will continue to have enquiry facilities located at the reception desk at North West Leicestershire District Council, in Whitwick Road, Coalville.

Leicestershire Police has a new website that aims to quickly answer non-emergency questions and free up staff to concentrate on urgent and more complicated calls. The ‘Ask The Police’ website, also available as an app for smart phones, holds answers to questions about things that the police are most frequently asked by the public dialling 101 or 999, e.g. stray dogs, noisy neighbours. The website www.askthe.police.uk is tailored to Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
