The opening hours will be restricted at first to gauge use, and will be 9am -5pm, but will adapt to cater for the needs of local residents after consultation as to the best hours. A large number of uniform and plain-clothes officers will work from the station, and the local community team will continue to operate from there.

Chief Superintendent Jeff Harris Borough Commander for Hounslow said" We have worked hard to get this Police Station re-opened. The local community have been very patient, and I feel justifiably pleased that we have four Police Stations open across the borough, and help towards rejuvenation of areas such as Brentford, which as the local community are aware - is undergoing huge redevelopment"

Local Inspector Lindsey Hannigan, the Officer in charge of Brentford added " I am delighted at the prospect of Brentford Police Station re-opening and continuing to forge close links with the local community. We are looking forward to the station re-establishing itself as a focal point for the residents and local businesses."
