Mobile station to curb thugs.

A MOBILE police station to tackle anti-social behaviour has been opened in Wirral.

The station, which is equipped with CCTV cameras producing high quality images, a public enquiry office and linked to networked computers, will be placed in areas affected by high levels of crime and anti-social behaviour.

It is funded by Wirral council and staffed by police and community officer.

Acting Area Commander for Wirral, Superintendent John Young, said it will be used in areas identified as "hotspots".

He said: "Dedicated officers will work from the station, getting into the heart of the community to address local issues.

"We want to encourage local residents to speak to police officers and use the opportunity to communicate any concerns they have."

The station is currently based in Highfield Road, Rock Ferry following numerous complaints from residents.

Wirral Council Cabinet Member for Community Safety, Councillor George Davies, said: "We see this police station as another opportunity to bring the work of community safety into the heart of Wirral's communities."
