Three More Stations To Be Manned Round The Clock In Return To ‘Local Policing’


Cheadle Heath Police Station is no longer the only one in the Stockport area to remain manned twenty four hours as the region looks to shake up its Policing policy.
The move came in from September 26th and will see stations at Bredbury, Reddish and Hazel Grove going 24/7.
For the last six years only the headquarters at Cheadle Heath, off Europa Way, has been round the clock, and it remains the only station where the public can attend.
But Superintendent Jo Rogerson says officers being based out of an additional three stations is something that will make a difference to the community.
She said: “The reopening of these buildings helps us become more instilled in our communities in Stockport.
“It allows officers to respond quickly to incidents near them and also helps them understand the issues that are most important to their local community. Local knowledge should increase.
“Visibility should also increase in those areas, allowing for a greater confidence and reassurance in the work that we do.
“It is a return to local policing, it is very exciting.”
Since 2010 all round the clock frontline officers worked out of Cheadle Heath, while the others were only used by neighbourhood officers and PCSOs.
