Building work at Luton Police Station’s public enquiry office will mean access to over the counter services will be limited next week.

Members of the public will still be able to call at the Buxton Road station to speak with staff but the waiting area will be temporarily restricted and counter space will be reduced while the refurbishment is underway from March 17-23.

A temporary alternative enquiry office will be opened at Future’s House in Marsh Farm from Monday 17 to Friday 21 from 9am – 5pm and the public are also reminded that face to face enquiry office services are also available at Dunstable and Houghton Regis police stations.

Wayne Humberstone who manages the enquiry offices across Bedfordshire said while the work was important the aim is to keep disruption to services to a minimum.

He said: “We know how important the services that our enquiry office staff provide are to the public and we will be maintaining this at Luton Police Station while the refurbishment is underway, but we wanted to manage peoples’ expectations as seating space will be limited and it may take longer to process their requests.

“I would encourage anyone seeking general advice from the police to use the alternative locations or call 101.”

>Luton and Dunstable Police Station enquiry offices are open seven days a week from 7am – 10pm.

Houghton Regis enquiry office is open Monday – Friday from 9am – 5pm.
