Pop-up Cop Shop in Wayfarers Arcade Southport

Merseyside Police, working in conjunction with Wayfarers Shopping Arcade, Southport BID team and Sefton Council, are setting up a Pop-Up Cop Shop from today, Wednesday, 12 October, to give help and advice to local shoppers leading up to the festive period.

The shop will be located at a unit in the Wayfarers Shopping Arcade, Lord Street, Southport from 10.30am – 12pm, Monday and Tuesday and Thursday and Fridays 12pm – 4pm.


Services on offer include the following:

Free anti-theft devices and personal security advice.

Tracker devices to be fitted to certain cycles for Southport and Birkdale residents.

Halford’s will be offering free cycle checks on cycles brought to the shop.

Personal safety equipment.

Southport Town Centre officer Con Andy Holland said: “We would encourage residents to take advantage of the free services and crime prevention advice being offered at the Cop Shop.

“Working closely with local partners, we can increase people’s awareness on issues including cycle and home security, and reduce the cost of this crime to both individuals and businesses.”

A spokesman for Sefton Council said: “We are very supportive of these kind of events and hope as many people as possible take advantage of the Pop Up Cop Shop.

“Funding for some of the anti-theft devices was kindly donated through the Southport Area Committee.”
