WORK has begun to upgrade the public facilities at Ely Police Station.
The enquiry office will be made larger and incorporate a private, sound proofed area for the public so they can discuss any issues they may have in confidence.
Facilities to allow disabled people and pushchairs better access to the police station will be upgraded, as well as the installation of bike racks for those who cycle there.
Another interview room will be upgraded with soundproof materials and a third interview room will be created.

"Very often people will not like to discuss their personal situation in the presence of others. Following the upgrade the private area can be used.
"People will find the building more accessible and more noticeable as the extension's design, which is quite modern, will stand out from the rest of the brick building.
