The police station in the capital city’s European District reopened its doors on Monday, after being closed for works for several months.
Located on Boulevard Clovis, a stone’s throw from Ambiorix Square and the European institutions, it aims to be a local police station, close to the citizens of this multicultural neighbourhood.
The freshly renovated premises were inaugurated on Monday at 1pm by Brussels Mayor Philippe Close and the head of the Brussels-Capital Region's Ixelles police zone, Michel Goovaerts.
“This renovation is part of a multi-annual plan to renew all the neighbourhood police stations,” the police said. “The renovated building will allow our staff to perform their daily tasks in the best possible conditions and to welcome and assist citizens in the best possible way.”
The neighbourhood police station has just under 20 officers, who patrol on bicycle and in electric cars. Two such vehicles, brand new, are now part of the police station’s fleet. They will allow the officers to carry out their proximity missions while helping to improve the quality of life in the area.
“This is part of the ‘green way’ we want to go,” said the area police.
Another local police station, located in Haren, has also been also renovated. It will reopen on 9 June.
