Alison Hernandez in St Ives earlier in 2021
The team moved in today, Friday 29 October, after the £990k sale of the old office in Trenwith Place which was no longer fit for purpose.
Devon and Cornwall Police has signed a two year lease on the Stennack offices, which is just a short distance from the old office, but the long-term goal is to move into a purpose built facility elsewhere in the town.
Police and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez, who is responsible for all police estate, said the move from the old offices was welcomed.
“In Devon and Cornwall we have a World class police force so it is important that our officers can work from facilities that are fit for purpose and that can’t be said for Trenwith Place,” she said.
“I am pleased that we have been able to achieve an excellent price for the old building and this money will be reinvested into a long-term solution for St Ives.
“In the meantime, I would like to thank the owners at Stennack for refurbishing the premises for occupation.”
The new police office is NOT open to the public.
