Police front enquiry office opens in Rutland


Mr Nixon said: “Continuing to improve the visibility and accessibility of police across all communities is a key priority for the force and in rural locations, like parts of Rutland, it is even more important.


“Throughout the last few years we have continued to expand the different ways the public can contact us, particularly digitally – with the use of online reporting.


“But we know different people prefer to engage with us in different ways and so it is vital we provide as many options as possible. Having a FEO at the station will help to strengthen the service we offer in the area.”


Inspector Lindsey Madeley-Harland, NPA Commander for Rutland and Melton, said: “It is great to have a FEO open again. This facility is an extension of the service we already provide in Rutland and offers people in the county another point of contact.


“Our local officers and staff will still be policing across the region – 24 hours a day, seven days a week – patrolling the streets, engaging with our communities and responding to incidents.”


Police and Crime Commissioner Rupert Matthews added: “Being able to see and talk to a police officer matters a great deal to our communities. 


“Rutland has been the only county in the country not to have a public facing enquiry desk, so I’ve pushed very hard for this.  I’ve listened to local people who feel very strongly about the need for a contact point to meet officers in the heart of the community and this new facility is the result.


“I recognise that feelings of safety go hand in hand with the ability to see police officers doing their jobs effectively in the community. This is what makes this provision so important. 


“This latest improvement will help to reassure residents that we are working hard to deliver the responsive service they expect. It also represents excellent value for money, eliminating rental costs and providing a secure base in the long-term.”
