Northwood Police Station will be closing as part of the Mayor of London’s plan to reduce the Met’s budget by £500million.
Volunteers who run the front desk will lock their doors for the last time on Tuesday, February 5, whist the rest of the operations shut on February 15.
The volunteers ran the desk three days a week since it opened to the public in 2003. Situated in a Grade II listed building, the station celebrated its centenary in 2011.
The nearest police station is now four miles away in Ruislip.
Philip Green, police representative for Northwood, said: “It means some people feel less safe and its disappointing there’s not a hub for people to visit.
“It’s been a gradual process. There are plenty of ways for people to connect with the police. They have sessions at Waitrose and Costa Coffee, and they have gazebo in the good weather. The local safer neighbourhood team (SNT) is available for people to contact too.”
The neighbourhood team have two new officers, sergeant James Last and PC Dan Ashworth.
