Mount Maunganui police staff on the move to new premises

Bay of Plenty

Mount Maunganui police staff could be working out of new premises by mid-late December.

Western Bay of Plenty Area Commander Inspector Clifford Paxton, who confirmed the move to staff earlier this week, said the new premises were sought following ongoing water tightness issues with the existing building. 

“We have been working closely with Police National Headquarters for the best option for our staff and the public, to maintain our operational capability and continued physical presence within the community.

“While there is no immediate need to vacate the building, the relocation is a solution which meets our service delivery requirements for the short-medium term future. An initial lease term of three years has been negotiated on a building located on the corner of Hull Road and Tukorako Drive in Mount Maunganui and we will relocate our policing operation over the next few months.”

The number of staff working from the new premises, phone contact details and front counter hours, remain unchanged.

The Police National Property Group is working with local staff on the fit out design for the new facility, ensuring it is fit for purpose for those who work within, from and visit.

Moving dates will be publically communicated in due course.
