Steyning police station re-open to the public

The newly refurbished Steyning police station has opened its doors to the public.

To keep pace with advances happening elsewhere in society, we recognise the need to invest in areas where police are serving the public.

This refurbishment has vastly improved areas for staff, officers and the public, providing a modernised, open plan space that makes the very best use of the building.

Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne said: “I am pleased that this hub for community policing in Steyning has been remodelled with new operational technology and a much brighter, welcoming décor, making it friendlier for the public and a nicer working environment for staff.

“I have responsibility for the police estates and this is part of an ongoing refurbishment plan to modernise and improve Sussex Police stations that are no longer fit for purpose, with high running costs and layouts that don’t support modern policing requirements. These updated facilities will further enable officers and staff to provide the very best service to the public”.

The station is now accessible to the public and will be open Monday – Friday between the hours of 10:00 and 14:00, excluding bank holidays. A yellow phone will also remain on site permanently which can be used 24 hours a day to report crime.
