News from Devon & Cornwall Police.

The first police station front desk to be reopened after investment by Devon and Cornwall’s Police and Crime Commissioner has welcomed in members of the public last month for the first time in eight years.

The front desk at Tiverton Station was one of 12 in Devon and Cornwall which were shut in 2014 austerity cuts.
