THE PSNI is to cut the opening times of some of its enquiry offices in a bid to save more money.
South Belfast PSNI commander Chief Inspector Robert Murdie said: “The PSNI has to deliver £38.4 million savings within this financial year (01 April – 31 March 2015). Over 80% of PSNI costs are tied up in staff and officer salaries.
“In Belfast City Policing District we know that people want to see officers on patrol, keeping people safe, tackling crime and bringing offenders before the courts.
“To ensure we can continue to do this we are looking at other aspects of our business to deliver savings.
“As of Monday 15th December 2014 the opening hours for the Enquiry Office at Lisburn Road Police Station will alter.
“Where previously it opened for 14 hours, it will now open for a 12 hour period, 8.00am – 8.00pm Monday to Saturday. Sunday hours will remain unchanged (1.00pm – 10.00pm).”
