Julia Mulligan, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, has announced that the police and fire services in Ripon will soon be sharing a base.
From 2 February, the local Neighbourhood Policing Team and 10 response officers currently based at Ripon Police Station will relocate from the building on North Street, to Ripon Fire Station, on Stonebridgegate.
North Yorkshire Police’s Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Phil Cain said:
The Police and Crime Commissioner says members of the public will still be able to access their local police in the new location.
A number of options for North Yorkshire Police’s long-term base in Ripon are still being explored and this includes conversations with partner agencies.
