Blyth Police Move To New Base

Officers from Blyth Neighbourhood Policing Team have moved to a new base in the town.

Police have from Thursday, November 19 re-located to Arms Evertyne House, Quay Road, Dun Cow Quay, in Blyth. The move comes as the force seeks to make sure officers are based in locations which are easily accessible to local people and offer value for money from the public purse.

Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Vera Baird said: “The new premises are in a modern building which is shared with other agencies including the local council. This is a busy location which is easy for people to access and best meets the needs of our communities.

“This accommodation also has much lower running costs than our older station which is also an important factor.

“Importantly it places the team at the heart of the community and helps them to remain highly visible to local people.”

The new office, which is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, is available for members of the public to report crimes or seek advice - just as they did at the previous police station in Blyth.

Temporary Chief Superintendent Sharon Stavers, Northern Area Commander, said: “We have planned this re-location for some time and are pleased we have now made this move which will benefit our local communities.

“Our officers will continue to deliver a community focused neighbourhood policing service from their new base.”

Now the neighbourhood team have relocated, Blyth police station will now be put up for sale with proceeds from it put back into policing.

Local Neighbourhood Policing Teams can be contacted on 101, extension 69191, via the Northumbria Police website, www.northumbria.police.uk
