There are fears Cornwall's police cuts are about to get worse.
It is as there are calls for a U-turn on shutting police station front desks in the Duchy.
Falmouth, Penzance, Bude, Liskeard and Launceston are set to go.
Now campaigners fear either Newquay or Launceston's custody centre will close too.
At the time of the original announcement Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Hogg told Pirate FM it is either closing the front dresk or taking officers off street patrols.
He said: "Initially I was concerned about this measure, but I've spent many hours with the police looking at the reality of the public's use of the enquiry offices, and the evidence is such that as a general statement these enquiry offices are hardly being used.
"I would rather not go through with this measure, but to protect the things we care about, the number of police officers in Devon and Cornwall, the neighbourhood nature of policing, and the contact with the public, we have to take our fair share."10:14am 6th October 2014
