Bromley policing changes announced by Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime

THE front counters at Orpington Police Station and Biggin Hill police base will close as part of plans to cut £514m from the Met’s budget by 2015.

Under the changes announced by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime on Monday (March 25) Bromley will be the only police station in the borough to be open 24 hours seven days a week.

The front counters at Copperfield House, 190 Maple Road, Penge, and West Wickham Police Office, 9 High Street, West Wickham, will be open daytime hours.

And there will also be three contact points open on Wednesday and Thursday evenings between 7pm and 8pm and every Saturday afternoon between 2pm and 3pm.

They will be at 192 Main Road, Biggin Hill; 49 High Street, Green Street Green, and the Cray Police Office, 43 to 45 High Street, St Mary Cray.

There are plans to have a contact point at The Walnuts shopping centre after Orpington Police Station closes.

Yes the Conservative party is very much the party of Law and Order and the Conservative Mayor, Boris Johnson, is to be congratulated on these savings which will put more police on the beat, save money and reduce crime. Three wins. Well done

Maybe if the government pushed through more laws on sentencing for crimes to make a sentence something criminals would fear, then they may think twice about their crimes. Burglary for instance ruins peoples lives. Burglars get a few months if any time at all. Only serve a fraction of their sentence and then are back out again to commit more burglaries. In the slightest chance they get caught a few more burglaries down the line, they have ruined more lives and then they get a few more months inside. A vicious circle.

Build more prisons give long sentences, get the scum off the streets.

You mean more police on the beat, saving money, and reducing crime provided that you live in Bromley, & not elsewhere in the borough.

The Safer Neighbourhood teams when set up were meant to have counters if I remember correctly. However the team in Petts Wood whilst they will call you back if you leave a message never answer the 'phone and the office is behind a locked fence. This is the only major detraction from an otherwise good job that they do.
