A mobile police station will be deployed to Woolwich town centre on Saturdays from 12pm to 2pm and Greenwich on Sundays from 12pm to 2pm
In Lewisham, Catford and Deptford police stations will be downgraded to a daytime only service, Brockley will lose its volunteer-led front counter and Sydenham station will also go.
