Stroud MP Siobhan Baillie has received an assurance from the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) that Dursley Police Station will not be closing.
There had been rumours circulating on social media the station might close or join together with the fire station.
Ms Baillie spoke with Gloucestershire’s PCC Chris Nelson recently over the concerns during a meeting at the police station to discuss violence against women and girls amongst other issues. He confirmed there are no closure plans.
“I am happy to go on record and put this rumour to bed: Dursley Police Station will remain open,” said Ms Baillie.
“I thank the PCC for clarifying the situation and I hope it reassures Dursley residents.”
In other local policing matters, Ms Baillie met with PCSO Nicola Woods at Margaret Hills Place earlier this month after the MP sent a questionnaire to residents to make them aware of anti-social behaviour and issues with rubbish.
She added: “The police are aware and we are trying to ensure the relevant Housing Association deal with these issues without further delay. It was important I contacted residents to tell them about what is happening and to hear their thoughts. The excellent PCSO has been concerned for some time too.”
