General Information

By SPP Reporter

Visitors to the Station

There is a Visitor/Regular Visitors Information Folder held at the Rogues Lane Gatehouse. Sponsors may provide the personal details of family and friends for inclusion in the Regular Visitor Information Folder. Such action will allow visitors smoother access to the Unit if, upon arrival, they inform the Gatehouse staff that they are on the regular visitors list.

Visitors must still produce a valid form of ID and a temporary pass valid for up to seven days will be issued. Alternatively, if visitors are staying for more than seven days, sponsors should attend the Passes & Permits Office, where a pass will be produced and retained at the Gatehouse for collection upon the arrival of visitors. You cannot update this list by telephone call.

Lost & Found Property

The loss of any personal or public property should be reported to the Main Guardroom. Any found property should be handed in to the Main Guardroom. Any unusual objects, packages or unidentified bags discovered must not be touched but their presence should be reported to the Main Guardroom on Ext 7666.
