Bruche Site

Volume 450: debated on Friday 20 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action is being taken (a) to ensure the security of the Bruche site and (b) to minimise problems for local residents following the ending of police training on the site. (95214)

[holding answer 19 October 2006]: Since May 2006, when foundation training for police officers ceased to be delivered at Bruche, Centrex has worked to ensure that ongoing security arrangements are sufficient both to protect the site and to reassure local residents. These measures include a continuing 24-hour security presence and the maintenance of on-site and boundary lighting. Where local concerns have been raised, Centrex has swiftly addressed these with their security contractor to ensure that the site is properly secured and monitored.
