“The new building will see a massive improvement to our working environment, providing vital support to officers and staff who deliver frontline services to keep the area safe. This is a milestone moment for policing in Blackpool – one which we feel will ultimately help us to provide a better quality of service to the public.”
Chief Supt Stuart Noble, Divisional Commander for Lancashire Constabulary’s West Division
“We feel it’s a five-star facility: it’s designed to be safer for staff and guests and the more efficient check-in process means we can get arresting officers back out on the streets more quickly. The cells have cameras, anti-graffiti surfaces, and reflective ceiling domes so occupants can be seen at all times…it means officers aren’t tied up on cell-door watch so can be out on patrols protecting the public.”
Chief Inspector Paul Minor, West Midlands Police Criminal Justice Manager
