Chatteris Police Station’s police enquiry office will remain open when the building is converted into a charity’s headquarters, with its garages becoming a police museum.

The station is being leased to the Police Firearms Officers Association, which provides counselling and support to firearms officers and their families.

A Cambs Police spokesman said: “Chatteris Police station is to be leased to the Police Firearms Officers Association (PFOA). “Although the building is being leased, the current police enquiry office facility will be retained.

“Operating hours and the service provided to the public will remain unchanged.”

The garages and dog kennel area would be converted into The Police Firearms History Museum, which would welcome school visits.

Both the offices and museum would be open Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm.

One office would be used for counselling and physiotherapy to help officers in their recovery and return to work.

The application for change of use says: “All alterations proposed are in fact improvements to the current building, such as the removal of notice boards, signage, tatty garage doors and asbestos roof sheeting.

“The relocation of the Police Firearms Officers Association into the building will ensure the premises are well maintained and do not become another vacant building on the high street.”
