Pop-up cop shop for Trowbridge

November 13, 2014 8:36 PM

A police station may be popping up in a street near you thanks to Trowbridge Area Board.

An application to this evening's Area Board meeting for £1750 to help the police get out and about in the town and surrounding villages was approved. According to Cllr Graham Payne, "The purpose of the grant is to provide a 'Pop Up Police Station' to be used by Trowbridge police (exclusively within the Trowbridge Area Board boundaries).
The equipment will be used regularly (at least once a week) to take out into the villages, the town centre and the housing estates to enhance the police presence and publicise police initiatives to make our communities safer. It would also be used to highlight police activity to counteract specific incidents of crime that may be occurring in an area at any time (eg damage to vehicles or anti-social behaviour)."
