Police sub-station to be set up in Guernsey

A new sub-station is being set up to cover St Sampson and the Vale, Guernsey police have announced.

The former Interpretation Centre near the Bridge is being converted into an office that will be staffed on a part-time basis.

Beat Officer Pc Karl Addis said it would provide a place where the police and the public can meet away from the main station in St Peter Port.

He said it would make it easier for the community to speak with officers.

Pc Addis said: "Myself and some of the neighbourhood police officers will be here at certain times of the day and evening.

"Members of the local community can come speak to us here rather than having to come to town to use the police station.

"It can be used to report crime, but it also can be for just for coming in to have a chat, see how things are going."
