Cowdenbeath’s Stenhouse Street police station has re-located to new premises on the town’s High Street.

All police business has now transferred to Brunton House on the busy main street.

The new police station, offering 24/7 access to members of the public, is in a building shared with key police partners including Fife Council Services and Fife Community Safety Partnership. This new, community centre is part of the plan to upgrade the Fife Constabulary estate so it is fit to meet the needs of 21st-Century policing.

Access to the public counter at the new police station is on Cowdenbeath High Street and there are public car parks close to Brunton House and on-site disabled parking is available at the rear of the building.

The old police station in Stenhouse Street was no longer fit for purpose to deliver modern policing, much of it had been underused in the past few years and it failed to meet modern Government energy efficiency targets.

Chief Inspector Mike Stevens said: “All police officers and staff are looking forward to working with local people in the new Brunton House Police Station to deliver the force’s vision of taking policing closer to the community. This new building will make it easier for officers to meet and work more closely with partners to deliver the highest standards of professional service for the people living in and around Cowdenbeath.

“Police officers have been working right around the clock to guarantee a smooth move to the new office and ensure we still deliver the high-quality service which the local community expects during this move.”
