Number of people using police station has 'fallen'

I am delighted that I have been able to finally sign off the sale allowing for the building to have a new and exciting use providing much needed new school places for children aged 7 to 11, to complement the West Hove Infant School Connaught Annexe.

They went on to say:

Hove Police Station has been a well known building in the community for many years but it was expensive to run and not in a convenient place for the public. Although people are attached to the idea of a local police station, nowadays policing is carried out from other bases across the County. The number of people visiting police stations is falling year on year and there are better alternative sites that we could use, pooling our resources with the Council.
