Safe and secure
The new Clough Road police station has 40 cells, built to minimise potential harm to detainees and comply with tight Home Office guidelines.
For example, it includes a specialist fire misting system – the first of its kind installed in the UK – with ductwork to ensure detainees will be safe in the custody suite if a fire were to break out in one of the cells.
High levels of security have been designed in. This includes specialist glazing around the large areas of curtain wall, security bollards and gates, and electronic personnel access systems.
