Sidmouth Police Station isn’t under threat

Concerns over the future of the Sidmouth Police Station have been quelled by the town’s top ranking police officer.
It comes after Devon County Council centralised its civil enforcement officers, to be based out of Exeter, rather than the town’s police station.
Concerns were raised at the latest Sidmouth Town Council meeting on Monday, by Councillor John Rayson.
Segregant Andy Squires said: “The Devon County Council civil enforcement officers were based in the building which meant it was one of the few police stations in our force that actually earned an income which was quite good however they have now centralised and rationalised and all work out of Exeter I believe.
“That doesn’t mean that the station is under threat at all.

“It is still very much occupied by us and the response officers and I have heard no inklings at all to it being closed down yet.”
