Volunteers are sought to help Bexley police open more information points around the borough.

If you are interested go along to Asda in Bexleyheath Broadway next Thursday (11) from 10am to noon to speak to the volunteer programme manager Adrian Smith.

You can also visit the front counter at Marlowe House in Sidcup on Saturday, April 13 from 10am to 2pm to find out what the volunteers do.

Bexley police currently has 50 non-uniformed officers who provide more than 700 hours of support every month.

Information points are operated in local libraries and supermarkets and Marlowe House is manned by volunteers.

Yesterday it was announced by London Mayor Boris Johnson that the front counter at Belvedere police station in Nuxley Road would be one of 63 across the capital to close in the next three years.
