Make an Appointment
You can make GP-style appointments with the police in our pilot scheme in a bid to free-up officers to spend more time patrolling neighbourhoods.
Under the appointment scheme, victims can book an hour-long appointment with an officer at one of four police stations across the county Ė Histon, Thorpe Wood, March and Huntingdon.
Cases will be looked at on a case-by-case basis and officers will still carry out home visits where necessary.
We understand people have busy lives and this service will provide flexibility, with appointments from 8am to 8pm seven days a week.
This initiative will bring the police more in line with other services, such as doctorsí surgeries, and as with the health service our emergency response will be there when required.
Frequently asked questions:
- How do I make an appointment?
When you call the police for any reason, if your matter is suitable for appointment the call taker will offer you dates, times and locations and make the arrangements for you.
- Are appointments private?
Yes. A private area is set aside for your discussion with the officer.
- What if I need more than an hour?
You will either be given a longer appointment, or if the matter takes longer than expected, the officer will make arrangements for extra time so that your matter can be progressed there and then.
- What if I need to re-schedule?
It is important that you keep the appointment that is made. If that is impossible, contact the police again in the usual way (101) and explain the situation. We will arrange an alternative time or date.
- What if I canít get to a police station i.e. because of a disability or childcare?
Officers are still available for home visits if you are unable to get to a police station.
