Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping has praised the commitment of the three blue light services after visiting a new multiagency base.
The PCC joined Chief Constable Craig Guildford on a visit to Hucknall which included a stopover at the new tri-base facility accommodating officers from Nottinghamshire Police, the Fire & Rescue Service and the East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS).
Based in the ambulance station on Annesley Road in Hucknall, the shared facility ensures police officers, including neighbourhood teams, response teams and CID officers, can remain in the heart of the community while boosting opportunities to work collaboratively with blue light colleagues.
“This shared facility is part of a drive to put more money into frontline policing by replacing inefficient buildings with better, more cost-effective facilities right in the heart of our communities,” said Mr Tipping.
Nottinghamshire’s Chief Constable, Craig Guildford, added: "This facility is designed to house all three emergency services, working alongside each other, which will reduce the overhead costs for each organisations while keeping the three services in the local neighbourhood.
“This helps each agency to sustain frontline services whilst promoting joint working which will serve the public well."
