After nearly two and a half years, and an estimated £24 million, Jersey Police open their new headquarters near the Green Street roundabout this morning.

Officers have been moving in over the last few days, and the old Police HQ on Rouge Bouillon shut for the final time last night.

The Visitor Reception Centre at the new HQ on La Route du Fort, will be open 7 days a week from 08:00 to 20:00 with an intercom connecting the public to an officer on duty outside of these hours.

Plans for the new headquarters were originally approved in 2013, and now that it is complete, it brings all officers into one building.

 

The official opening of the new HQ will follow later in the year and currently the exact final cost of the building is unknown.

On 15 December 2016 a Freedom of Information request showed that the predicted cost of the new police station and headquarters would be £24,397,870.

The estimated figure was within the allocated budget and included the extension to Green Street Multi-Storey Car Park and all other associated works.
