Johnstone Police Office in Quarry Street closed for the last time on Friday before opening their new office in Johnstone Town Hall.

Local community police officers will relocate to new shared accommodation within Johnstone Town Hall.

The new station will provide a modern and accessible community policing base for local officers whilst at the same time enhance local partnership-working with partner agencies who are also based within the Town Hall.

The new Public Bar within the Town Hall will operate the same opening hours from Monday to Friday 9am until 5am.

It will be closed daily from 1230 – 1330 hrs for lunch as well as Public Holidays.

Chief Inspector Simon Wright, Area Commander for Johnstone and Renfrew area said: “I expect our new community policing hub and public counter facility will enhance our engagement with the residents and businesses of Johnstone.

“The people of Johnstone can expect to see my community policing officers deploying daily from this location on foot, right out into the heart of the community, while my Response Policing officers continue to be based and deploy from our existing premises in Quarry Street.

“I anticipate our new premises within Johnstone Town Hall will enhance our delivery to the public through the new partnership location. “
