Tunstall Police Station is not For Sale

Chief Inspector Adrian Roberts updates local residents in Sandyford & Goldenhill by saying that the police are committed to Tunstall.

The statement to S.A.G.E. from Inspector Roberts reads as follows.

Dear local resident, I am aware of some concerns in the community about the future of local policing in Tunstall.

We have liaised with senior officers and can now provide you with this update from Graham Liddiard, director of resources at Staffordshire Police which we hope will reassure you about our ongoing commitment to the communities of Tunstall.

“We can now categorically confirm that Tunstall Police Station has not been earmarked for sale in 2012/13″

We have reviewed the Police Authority papers and identified an administrative error. This is currently being rectified and new papers will be circulated prior to the full Police Authority meeting next week.

“Whilst there are no plans to sell the site, it is fair to say that we are reviewing its use to ensure it provides value for money to the local community. This means looking at ways of reducing the ongoing costs and using the space more effectively. Of course this is something we are doing with all of our buildings across the force.”

Chief Inspector Adrian Roberts.
