Police Scotland Clyde Gateway
Police Scotland, in the early months of 2015, became the biggest single employer in our area thanks to the 1,100 staff moving into a new state-of-the-art office constructed on the banks of the Clyde at the boundary of Dalmarnock and Shawfield.
This eye-catching and impressive five-storey building was built at a cost of £24 million over an 18-month period during which time it supported 300 jobs in the construction industry as well as providing job, training and work experience for 50 residents from the Clyde Gateway area.
The new building was given a royal opening by HRH Princess Anne on 19 November 2015.
“Our new location in the east end of the city has delivered everything Police Scotland wished for.The staff are housed in a fantastically modern and comfortable building right on the banks of the river with excellent connections to the motorway and rail networks.
Operationally, we have been able to bring more of our key administrative, financial and force support activities under one roof with another benefit being the amount of energy and other efficiency savings that we are making as a result of being in a building that has been fitted out exactly to our requirements.”
Neil Richardson, former Deputy Chief Constable, Police Scotland
