Police Stations In Borth And Penparcau To Close

police ceredigionDyfed Powys police has announced that it will be closing both Borth and Penparcau police stations.

This follows announcements that both Cardigan and Tregaron police stations are also to close in a move that will save around £1 million.

Although Ceredigion is a relatively low crime area in comparison with other parts of the UK, there are fears that this signals the move away from community policing.

The police force as a whole has born the brunt of government spending cuts in recent months, and the police are looking to make savings wherever possible, and it does seem to make sense to close the smaller stations which sit in low crime area.

Policing services will be centralised to main stations such as that in Aberystwyth, and it is hoped that services and response times will not be affected, althought whether this will be the case remains to be seen.
