We have completed the construction of a new police operations centre on Ashmead Road, Keynsham, which will also house custody, crime investigation and general office accommodation.
The operations centre will have 48 cells, replacing existing custody provision at Bath, Broadbury Road, 50% of central Bristol and surrounding police stations. A specialist crime investigation team will also be located here to assist with the investigation and so enable the police officers to return to their communities quicker. There are no plans to include an enquiry office on this site, although reception facilities to serve detainees and their representative will be included.
“Although the site is surrounded predominately by industrial buildings it is pleasing to note that the introduction of a wildlife garden and good overall landscaping criteria will be a true legacy of this particular project.” Monitor’s Site Report, Considerate Constructors Scheme.
