Boyle welcomes news that Castlederg police station will be sold
Sinn Féin MLA Michaela Boyle has welcomed news that Castlederg police station is to be sold.
The West Tyrone MLA said;
"At today's meeting of the Policing Board it was announced that 12 police stations will be sold off, including Castlederg station.
"Sinn Féin has long campaigned for the removal of this station, which has been a massive drain on the public purse.
"This militarised barracks, which has been laying empty, contributes nothing to civic and accountable policing in Castlederg.
"Now that this site is being sold I would like to see it being used in a way that enhances and develops the local community in the village."
