Crime Commissioner plans to move police HQ closer to South Bank
Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Grove has put the former Police Authority building in Hull up for sale.
Matthew Grove says he wants to become more accessible to both the North and South Bank.
Mr Grove has said the funds created will be used to create a Community Crime Prevention Fund
He said: "One of the pledges I made in my manifesto was to sell off this building and relocate my office and staff to somewhere more modest and look to possibly share premises with other organisations.

"I want to ensure that my office is more accessible to people on both the North and South bank.
"I intend to use the capital receipt released from the sale of the building to create a Community Crime Prevention Fund, which will fund suitable capital projects brought forward by community groups that will be of positive benefit to them and our communities."
In the past, Mr Grove has mentioned sharing offices with the Humber Bridge Board.
Pacific Exchange, a Grade II listed building on Hull's High Street was built in 1899 and was home to a trading exchange for the corn, flour and seed crushing industries.
It has also been used as a private club and restaurant in its history.
The former Humberside Police Authority took over the building in 2001. The authority was disbanded when the police and crime commissioner role was created.
