The Car Hire Glasgow Airport think the move to a new building for the police force in the area will be a positive step.
Police officers and civilian staff in Glasgow will move to a new £24 million administrative headquarters in the Dalmarnock area next year. The five-storey Riverside East site will service Police Scotland operations across the west of Scotland.
Prior to the creation of a national force in 2013, Dalmarnock had been earmarked as the new headquarters for the former Strathclyde Police. The new site effectively replaces the old Strathclyde HQ at Pitt Street.
Completion of the Riverside East building is scheduled for November with staff moving in from the beginning of 2015. The building will become home to 1,100 officers and civilian staff.
Deputy Chief Constable Neil Richardson said “This is a fantastic opportunity for Police Scotland to relocate from its current Pitt Street location. This will unlock real benefits not only for the Police Authority and the Police Service but will be crucial to contributing to the regeneration of the Clyde Gateway area and will enable enhanced policing services to be delivered to local communities and beyond.”
