Burnham-On-Sea Police Station is introducing new opening hours from Monday (September 1st) as part of a number of changes.

The opening hours of the station’s enquiry office will be 10am-6pm Monday to Friday (closed for lunch between 1.30-2.15pm).

The current hours are Monday 12pm – 8pm (closed 4.15pm – 5pm); Tuesday 8.30am – 4.30pm (closed 11.15am -12pm); Wednesday 12pm -8pm (closed 4.15pm – 5pm); Thursday 8.30am – 4.30pm (closed 11.15am – 12pm) and Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm (closed 11.15am – 12pm).

Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Nikki Watson said: “Our enquiry offices are a vital channel for members of public to interact with us and we want to make sure we are providing the best service to meet the demand we face.”

“We have spoken to partners, staff and members of public and we were consistently told our opening hours can be confusing and it would be simpler if we removed alternating patterns and instead open the same hours every week.”

“We will be making changes to our police stations in the coming months and years so there will be further changes, but it was important for us to provide a simpler service for our communities as soon as possible.”
