Newport Focus Team has renewed its calls for a fully-functional police base in Newport, following news of a base being re-established in Shifnal.
Cllr Thomas Janke first launched the campaign in 2019, but has renewed calls to base the local policing team in Newport in order to respond to be able to respond to incidents in Newport and surrounding villages more quickly.
For a number of years, the local policing team have been able to use facilities at Newport Fire Station as a pit stop, but Donnington remains their base. The population of Newport has risen significantly since Newport’s police station was closed in 2013. Crime in Newport rose 13% in the year to June 2022, compared with the year before.

We call for Newport's local policing team to be based at a fully-functional police base in Newport.
