One-stop-cop-shop now open

| 06/04/2010

(CNS): The new police licensing and records office opened its doors to the public this morning Tuesday 6 April offering a one-stop-shop for all RCIPS records and licensing services. The new records office is operating from the former DVDL office in Walkers Road which is now home to the RCIPS Professional Standards Unit, Firearms & Security Licensing Unit and the Criminal Records Office. Twelve members of staff will be based at the site which boasts a large reception area and dedicated interview rooms – facilities which were not available at the old locations.

The office will also be home to the police IT department which will relocate from George Town police station. This move will free up operational space at the police station and allow plans for a purpose-fit room for video and tape-recording of interviews to progress.
 “I’m pleased to say that long queues, unwelcoming surroundings and lack of privacy will soon be things of the past for people who have records or licensing enquiries,” said Commissioner of the RCIPS, David Baines. “As a result of this amalgamation we will be able to increase efficiencies of service, and savings, without recruiting additional staff, which is extremely important in the current financial climate.
“This one-stop-shop approach to the provision of these services will offer a much more practical working environment for our staff and, critically, the new location and centralisation of these Units will greatly enhance the quality of service we provide to our customers and communities.”
Contact details for the new department are as follows:
Address  — 461 Windjammer Plaza, Walkers Road.
Tel – Records/ Licensing – 945-4924, Professional Standards Unit – 946-2094
