Proposals to cut opening times at police stations and shut four front counters are part of £20million budget cuts.
The force says less than one per cent of people in Leicestershire use the front counter service, with an average of just one person an hour walking through the door at some stations.
A statement from the force claims:
Anyone who would like to have their say can fill out a consultation form by September 27.
A consultation over plans to slash opening hours at Leicestershire Police's front counters is entering its final stage.
People in the county have just two weeks left to have their say on the proposals, which would see shorter opening times at 13 of the force's 17 manned police stations.
The front counter service at the other four locations - Syston, Lutterworth, Belgrave and Braunstone - would be closed completely.
