The opening hours for Barking police station are expected to change after concerns were raised at a community safety meeting.
Under plans from borough commander Andy Ewing the station will be open from Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 6pm, with a late night on Thursday and Friday to 9pm.
The changes are expected to come into force early next year with an exact date to be announced soon.
They are being made so there is a police presence in the area while the town centre market is open following consultation with the Community Safety Partnership.
Currently the station is open Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm with late nights on Thursday and Friday to 9pm.
