Police Scotland is urging the public to give their views on proposals to change the use of police buildings in Dumfries and Galloway, which could see a number of stations being closed.
The force is carrying out a consultation as part of its Estates Review, which aims to streamline services.
The review has found that eight stations: Whithorn, Dalry, Kirkcudbright, Dalbeattie, Moffat, Gretna, Thornhill and Langholm, could all be closed.
In a statement released today, Police Scotland say no decisions have yet been taken, and that they are working with local authorities, politicians and people to "deliver an even better service".
Chief Superintendent Gary Ritchie says some of the force's buildings no longer "fit the demands of 2016 and beyond".
He is urging the public to list their views on this online survey.

The union for farmers in Scotland is calling on local authorities to ban Chinese lanterns ahead of Bonfire Night on 5 November.
The lanterns (also known as sky lanterns) are made from paper held together with a wooden or wire frame, and the NFUS says they are a fire hazard, and can scare livestock.
They are also urging people setting off fireworks to take consideration of animals in the area.
The union says eight local authorities have already banned the use of Chinese lanterns, and that it will contact the remaining authorities, including Dumfries and Galloway Council and Scottish Borders Council, to urge them to do so.
