The state-of-the-art Community Safety Hub is a flagship centre, providing a cost effective and cutting-edge home for modern-day specialist policing on Teesside.
The building will home the Force control room, specialist services, Cleveland Police Executive Team and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, as well as having meeting space for the public and partners
Esh Build was named as the build partner and used local suppliers to support the construction and invest in skills workshops in some schools.
After consultation with internal and external parties, it was decided that the road leading to the Community Safety Hub will be named Cliffland Way, a symbol of the area’s history and heritage.‘Cliffland’ is the old Nordic name for Cleveland.
The cost of the building was completely covered by the sale of the former Police Headquarters site at Ladgate Lane, which will be decommissioned and demolished later this year. Permisson have purchased the land to develop their Ladgate Woods housing estate.
Historical artefacts found at Ladgate Lane
As officers and staff began the process of clearing out the former Police HQ at Ladgate Lane, a number of historical artefacts were found and collected by Sgt Barry Plumpton.
Items include ceremonial swords, lances and log books dating back more than 100 years. Also uncovered are old uniforms, photographs and other items of historical and community interest
PCC Barry Coppinger arranged for the collection to be given to Teesside Archive, where they can be accessed by members of the public.
Donation of furniture from Ladgate Lane site
During the decommissioning of the Ladgate Lane site, it became clear that there was a large supply of furniture in a good condition, which could not be taken to the new building.
PCC Barry Coppinger decided to donate the furniture to local community and voluntary organisations across the Cleveland area.
