The call has gone out for volunteers to provide counter
service at Mosgiel police station.
Clutha-Taieri area response manager Senior Sergeant Alastair
Dickie, of Mosgiel, said staff on the front counter at the
station worked part-time from 10am-2pm on weekdays.
''Some of the local people have expressed dissatisfaction
about that so we are trying to improve our service.''
The volunteers would attend the station counter and duties
would include taking messages and lost and found reports.
Basic training would be given to successful applicants after
vetting. An ideal applicant would be a retiree with time
flexibility, he said.
