The event is being held on October 31, at Salisbury’s Guildhall, from 7pm-8.30pm.
A panel made up of: Wiltshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Wilkinson, Wiltshire Police Chief Constable Kier Pritchard, Acting Chief Constable David Minty, Wiltshire Police and OPCC Chief Finance Officer Clive Barker and Wiltshire Police Superintendent Liz Coles.
In the summer Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Wilkinson announced work to deliver an improved policing service in the south of the county, which included a new station, had taken a step forward with possible locations and solutions actively being explored.
Now the Commissioner, alongside Wiltshire Police Chief Constable Kier Pritchard and other senior police officers and executives, want to update residents, and other interested parties, about the work carried out so far and give the public a chance to discuss further details of the options on the table.
In November last year, the Commissioner announced the results of Wiltshire Police’s operational review of the policing estate in the south of the county. It revealed the current Salisbury base at Bourne Hill wasn’t fit-for-purpose in its current format.
Since then, a project team has identified and scoped the possibility of several sites in the Salisbury vicinity which could house a new city station, alongside other key functions, needed to deliver a quality, frontline, police service which meets the needs of its communities.
The team have been working on three different proposals:
Refurbishment of the existing Bourne Hill – this is not an optimal solution due to lack of space and the review already revealing it is not future fit.
A smaller community hub on land at the back of Wilton Road – this is not an optimal solution due to the nature of the education establishment being delivered there.
A new purpose-built policing hub at High Post, which would service the south of the county. This solution is being considered both with, and without, a custody suite attached. As part of this solution, enquiry office-style shops would be utilised in both Salisbury and Amesbury to provide a police front desk and used as touchdown points for officers.
A livestream will be available for those unable to attend as well as a recording to watch after the event on the OPCC’s digital channels.
