The new Southmead police station was officially opened by Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens and Chief Constable Andy Marsh on Wednesday 31 July 2019.
The local community will now be able to visit the enquiry office at Westgate House, a building within the Southmead Hospital site, between 10am – 6pm, Monday to Friday.
Outside of these hours public can call 101 or visit www.avonandsomerset.police.uk for assistance or in an emergency call 999.
The enquiry office occupies a space on the ground floor and the first floor provides a modern, fit for purpose station for the local Neighbourhood team.
“I’m delighted to unveil the new and permanent home for Southmead police station at Southmead Hospital. The future of policing is about being located with our partners, where local people can access multiple services under one roof and make the best use of our accessibility and resources.”PCC Sue Mountstevens
Chief Andy Marsh added: “We are delighted to have a new home in Southmead, located on the Southmead Hospital site and only a short distance from the old police station.
“The new site underlines our commitment to give a permanent base to the beat managers and PCSOs, whose posts have been protected since 2013. The new station will ensure that the police will be where they are needed most, in the heart of your community. This is an exciting time for local policing and reinforces our commitment to serving our communities and continuing to work alongside our local partners.”
