Thames Valley Police have informed us:
We are proposing to close a number of front counters in the county as we improve our communication with the public by other means while ensuring that in the main you will never be further than ten miles from a front counter.
The following changes are scheduled to come in on 1 April 2016:
- Abingdon, St Aldates and Banbury front counters will now be open from 8am and 10pm, seven days a week.
- Meanwhile, front counters at Witney and Bicester will be open from 10am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, while Kidlington will be open from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
Previously, each front counter would offer a different level of service but these counters will offer all services to the public.
- Front counters at Cowley, Henley, Didcot, Thame, Wantage, Faringdon, Wallingford, Carterton, Woodstock and Chipping Norton are scheduled to close.
The public can still contact the police by telephone, via our website, social media accounts or our community alert system.
