Public meeting to scrutinise Lincoln policing

Further discussion: The public are invited to attend a meeting discussing the future of Lincoln Police Station.

Lincolnshire Police HQ in Nettleham, where a new G4S custody suite could be built.

The future of policing in Lincoln is to be scrutinised at a public meeting on Tuesday, July 31.

In a follow-up to the community meeting which took place at St Mary Le Wigford Church on July 19, the meeting later this month will discuss the proposal of a new City Centre Police Station.

It will also discuss the potential closure of the current police station on West Parade.

The public gathering is expected to include views and presentations from a number of interested parties, including the City of Lincoln Council’s Anti-Social Behaviour Team, as well as a response from Neil Rhodes, Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police.

Feedback from residents at the meeting will be taken into consideration by Lincolnshire Police before final decisions are made on the future of the service.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the meeting of the City of Lincoln Council’s Leadership Scrutiny Commitee, which will take place at 6pm at the Lincoln Drill Hall on July 31.
