Police close doors


RECEPTION counters at all police stations on the Mornington Peninsula are closed until further notice because of the COVID-19 crisis.

Stations are at Mornington, Rosebud, Dromana, Sorrento and Hastings.

Reception counter at Frankston police station remains open.

Those reporting on bail at any station can press the intercom for attention.

Senior Sergeant Paul Edwards, of Mornington police, said members of the public wanting “critical” documents signed – such as affidavits allowing them to access their superannuation, for example – would be catered for but others with less urgent documents should go to GPs, pharmacies or bank managers.

“With anything considered essential or critical people can hit the intercom at the front door and explain their urgency and we may let them in. With anything less urgent we will have to turn them away,” Senior Sergeant Edwards said.

Call the stations to speak to an officer: Hastings 5970 7800, Rosebud 5986 0444 and Mornington 5970 4900.

People can report crime online or, in the case of an emergency, call 000. To report non-urgent crimes and events call the Police Assistance Line 131 444.
