Police officers in Peterhead will relocate to their new £1.5 million purpose-built premises at Aberdeenshire Council’s office in the town next week.
Officers currently based in the existing station on Merchant Street will move to a new two-storey extension at Buchan House next Monday.
As of then, the Merchant Street station, deemed no longer fit for purpose, will be non-operational and no longer open the public.
The region’s newly-appointed chief superintendent, George Macdonald, said: “The police station at Merchant Street has served us well over the years, however we are delighted to be moving to Buchan House where we will co-locate with our partners at Aberdeenshire Council.
“The move opens up many opportunities for Peterhead including increased access to services for the public, as well as the closer working opportunities it will provide for Aberdeenshire Council, Police Scotland and our partners.”
Police front counter staff from Merchant Street station have been based alongside council staff at Buchan House since November 2016.
