Malton Police Station Could Be Sold Off

Malton Police Station

2:49pm 9th October 2014

Malton's police station could be sold off with officers moving next door into Ryedale Council's headquarters to save money.

The plans were revealed at a meeting of North Yorkshire's Police and Crime Panel today.

North Yorkshire Police Commissioner Julia Mulligan spoke to Minster FM's Kevin Larkin about the reasons behind the idea.

Co-location has already been set up in other parts of the county, such as Filey and Bedale.

It comes as North Yorkshire Police also looks at creating "investigation hubs" in York and Scarborough. The force says these hubs will allow crimes to be investigated more quickly and speed up the justice process. It's also hoped the hubs will cut paperwork work and get officers back on the beat.

Chief Constable Dave Jones gave Minster FM's Kevin Larkin his thoughts on the idea of closing Malton Police Station.

Ryedale Council has declined to comment on the co-location talks with North Yorkshire Police.
