NEW OPENING TIMES FOR BRIGG POLICE STATION
Many Brigg Blog readers may be unaware that the town's police station, on Barnard Avenue, is open four days each week for public inquiries about crime-related issues.
Amended hours have now been issued. So if you want to inquire about crime prevention measures, you have information of use to the police, have been unlucky enough to suffer a break-in/other mishap, or have been instructed to produce your documents by one of the boys or girls in blue, here are the new opening hours:
Monday: Noon to 4:30pm and 5:30pm to 8pm
Wednesday: 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 6pm
Thursday: 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 6pm
Saturday: 9am to 1 pm and 2pm to 5pm
The public inquiry office is off the main entrance from Barnard Avenue - NOT through the gates leading to the police car park.
Brigg police station is now multi-purpose, providing a base for local neighbourhood officers, crime scene investigators and those involved in family safeguarding.
When originally opened in the late 1970s, it was the headquarters of the Brigg & Barton sub-division of Humberside Police, with a chief inspector in charge.
Traffic officers were also based there for many years.
