Should Helston Police Station reopen to public? POLL

Falmouth Packet: Should Helston Police Station reopen to public? POLL Should Helston Police Station reopen to public? POLL

Cornwall's Police and Crime Commissioner would consider reopening Helston Police Station to the public if there was “a strong strength of feeling” for it.

Tony Hogg, a former commanding officer of RNAS Culdrose, made this assurance in a letter to Helston Town Council, who had written asking for him to reinstate the front desk at the station that closed in January 2011.

Mr Hogg said: “The reality is that very few front desks were used regularly, with the majority of the public preferring to use the telephone.

“If, however, there is a strong strength of feeling in Helston that this position should be reviewed then I would welcome a business case from the town council that evidences the need for the re-instatement of this service, which I would then be able to give my thorough consideration.”

Discussing the issue at last Thursday's town council meeting, councillor Martine Knight believed the council would have “extreme difficulty” in proving reopening the desk would be a feasible option.

“There's no harm trying, but it would be virtually impossible. In an ideal world, where there are no budget constraints, they would have all stayed open but more than half of them were closed,” she added.

However, mayor Jonathan Radford-Gaby said he had heard a report of a member of the public needing help urgently from the police, but despite banging on the police station door they had to contact the central call centre via the phone outside. “How barmy is that?” he said.

Councillor Ronnie Williams said the council should support it “on behalf of the people” of Helston, adding: “The public in general want it. More than likely it will never happen, but we're seen to be looking after the people.”

Councillor John Boase suggested Helston contact the parish councils on the Lizard Peninsula and Porthleven Town Council to see if they could give their support.

It was agreed to write to Mr Hogg for more details on what information he would expect to find in the “business case” he wanted Helston to submit.

The front office of Helston police station should be reopened to the public, the office was staffed by police staff as are other station offices, they are not staffed by sworn officers or PCSOs and therefore would make no difference to the level of policing on the streets.

When the Helston office was closed to the public we were informed by the former Chief Constable that no member of the public would have to travel more than fifteen miles to a police station that has an office open at certain hours to the public. This theory has proved incorrect as both Falmouth and Camborne are more than the stated mileage from destinations on the Lizard peninsula.
Helston police station front office closure proved inconvenient on the occasions I have handed in 'found goods' one cannot do that over the phone.
We also see a lower percentage of neighbourhood officer coverage, in line with the emphasis on the original neighbourhood visible policing policy, than we used to in Mullion. Therefore I believe that to expect officers to come out to Mullion to collect 'found items' is not really ideal or in many cases feasible. I have the benefit of e-mail/telephone contact but in a village with a high percentage of elderly people, not everyone has Internet access and would often prefer to speak to someone in person, particularly given the fact that generally speaking one cannot contact their local police station directly by telephone but rather via the call centre based in Exeter. I believe Helston Town Council along the local parish councils should fight to get out local police station office reopened to the public however minimal the hours may be.

Incidentally, hopefully those officers that were due to retire this year because of the implementation of the A19 clause, would not have done so since the ruling was revoked.

Falmouth and Camborne have just as good response times as does Helston so why should Helston be the poor relation when it comes to having a front office open. Helston area has one of the largest geographical areas to cover. Not having a person from the back office in Helston doing paperwork and instead sitting in the front office for a couple of hours a week to allow the front office to be open to the public is not going to suddenly provide extra response officers or neighbourhood policing patrols.

I was told a while ago most of the detective work was now transferred to Falmouth from Helston, so I would be interested to know if the CID department is still in situ at Helston, the last time a detective rang me he had transferred from Helston to Penzance, my concerns are how many other things will be 'filtered out' at Helston until such time comes that they close it altogether.

I also believe that despite many other front office closures due to budget restraints, Helston has a stronger case for being open than others, due to the distance between the rural areas (such as the Lizard) and Falmouth or Camborne and the lack of reliable frequent connecting public transport.

Several people have had to use the phone outside the police station to ring the call centre in Exeter because the police station is closed. Must be frustrating during the day especially when the building is occupied.

The town seems to do fine with the desk closed at the police station. I have never heard anyone say that we need to get it open again. A lot of people are unaware it is even closed.
What I hear people complaining about is the employment of people in positions that are not needed with large salaries and the towns money being handed out to landlords.

I do think that Helston Town Council as volunteers that do not receive a huge salary like Mr Hogg does, should not really have to spend valuable time conducting research and providing a business case to justify the re opening of Helston police station. The evidence was there in the strength of public feeling prior to the closure. Perhaps Mr Hogg may like to conduct a little research himself, after all, no one asked him to provide a business case before voting for him. He only provided a short summary of why people should vote for him. I did actually vote for him after conducting my own research on him and his policies.
One could take a look at the figures of those people that rang the call centre or emailed during daytime hours from within the whole geographical area that Helston covers and it would give an idea of how many people may have liked to have called into the police station, additionally the amount of people like myself that come under the Helston area and have attended police stations in person other than Helston.
Incidentally, not that it has ever affected me but what happens about all those people that have 'producers' do they have to travel to Falmouth, Camborne just to produce driving documents. All those people should be included in the figures to help justify the re opening of Helston police stations front office.

Ron how can you really say Helston is doing fine without the police station being open, have you witnessed the inconvenience of all those people that think otherwise? It is a bit like if I said Helston and surrounding area are doing fine without any more investment into social services or care for the vulnerable etc or if I said I have not heard anyone complain about cut backs to those services simply because it dosn't affect me personally. If you wish to be a councillor in the future then I believe you need to consider the needs of others not just what personally does or does not affect you.
I believe in affordable housing and social rented and always argue the case for it although it does not affect me personally.

Helston Town Council have already decided on employing more staff according to the Packet article and whilst I personally am against it, I do however respect that it is their decision and as such will sit back without personally trying to challenge them. You obviously disagree with it also but you can't expect them to actually revoke the decision just because we don't like it. It would need a majority view to be against it and neither you nor I have evidence of that.

When they were planning on closing the police station to the public I remember reading people's majority views against it. In all honesty, where have we read even one letter yet from anyone expressing their views against the paid staff in Helston ?
So far, I total it 4 people on this website. I conclude we either have to all put our objections into writing to the town council or accept their decision.
