    Wasn’t this police station temporarily closed earlier this year?

  2. Keep it closed! It don’t seem to be of any assistance. Am I the only one who can recall the shootings around by Charring Cross? (a moment away from that station)It had taken the Police a really long time to respond to that event as it has with countless others?

      They were busy doing other things.

      Only time one leaves a station is if someone is outside and needs help.

      Been here done that.

      Everything takes time.

      Even healing.

      Riiight, because you want un-armed officers responding to a shots fired call. Heck, did they even have body armour at the time? Yes, we are trained to run toward gunshots and other trouble. But at least in the US we have the tools to respond.

      My family ask me why won’t I come back and join BPS. Until every officer has a firearm that won’t be happening!

    Honestly, because what Somerset needs is less of a police presence?

    I have two words for the idiots in government who are responsible for taking care of the buildings. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE.. to keep from occurring; avert; hinder…the act of maintaining. Try it..
