Formby Police station general enquiry office closed on Monday 9 January. Formby residents and visitors will not be able to make general enquiries at Formby Police station. The stations will be staffed but will focus on operational work.
Inspector Jim Atherton explains:
All Police Stations will remain open but we are reducing the number of General Enquiry Offices because of the need to maintain other essential services to protect your community.
This means from Monday, the 9th of January, if you want to call in to a General Enquiry Office, you can go to Southport Police Station, which is open all week, 24-hours a day, or Marsh Lane Police Station, from 8am - 10pm, Monday to Saturday.
You can visit your local police station by pre-arranged appointment with your Neighbourhood Policing Team. All stations have a phone box outside, which can be used to contact the police in an emergency.
There are a number of ways to contact Merseyside Police, which includes local surgeries in libraries and shops. If you have a non-emergency incident to report or want to speak to your local neighbourhood policing team, you can call '101'. You can also report minor crime online.
In the past some residents have complained that the telephone outside the station 'was not working'. Please let me know if that happens to you.
