Another police station is re-opening to the public as part of a promise made to residents.

Waterfoot police station in Rossendale will reopen to the public tomorrow (Monday, August 1).

The opening comes as part of the Police and Crime Commissioner Andrew Snowden's pledge to ensure public access to police front counters across Lancashire.

In 2021, front counters in Clitheroe, Kirkham and Leyland all welcomed back residents, meaning that now all areas of Lancashire have access to an open police station within their borough.

The Waterfoot station will be operating on weekdays between 9am and 1pm.

Mr Snowden said: "It has always been my view that policing needs to be at the heart of local communities and providing access to a police front counter for all residents is a huge part of that.

"Seeing Waterfoot police station re-open its doors to the public is fantastic and it's exactly what I promised to deliver when I was elected as Police and Crime Commissioner.

"Community intelligence is really important in taking the fight to criminals and each and every borough of Lancashire now has access to at least one open front counter making it easier for residents to speak to local officers, to raise concerns and to report crime.”

Chief Inspector Marie Jackson added: "The service, operating weekdays from 9am-1pm, provides an additional way for local residents to contact us for non-urgent issues.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming anyone who wants more information on local policing or who needs to discuss community problems."
