Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), is responsible for the Suffolk Constabulary’s estate, which involves the acquisition, management and disposal of all building and related assets.
Identifying opportunities to share public sector buildings is key to helping meet some of the financial challenges the constabulary faces. The PCC works closely with the Chief Constable on estate issues; being responsible for the buildings, the Chief Constable is responsible for determining the operational need.
The constabulary has an excellent record in sharing estate with partners. It jointly owns Landmark House with Suffolk County Council and shares sites at eleven joint police-fire stations in Beccles, Leiston, Newmarket, Saxmundham, Felixstowe, Woodbridge, Ixworth, Elmswell, Debenham, Framlingham and Clare with Suffolk Fire and Rescue.
As well as the constabulary’s commitment to the Mildenhall Hub, there are also plans for joint police-fire stations in Stowmarket and central Ipswich, and the PCC and the constabulary continue to work with West Suffolk Council in the feasibility stages of the Western Way development.
