Due the recent flooding in Ballater, the local police office sustained extensive damage and has been temporarily closed.
In order to maintain a presence in the village, a series of surgeries have been arranged over the next few weeks at a mobile police office which will be located outside the Victoria and Albert Halls in Ballater.
On each Tuesday from January 19 until February 9, officers will be available for consultation between 6.30pm and 8pm.
On each Saturday from January 23 until February 13, officers will be available from 9.30am until 11am.
Also, until further notice, the police office at Aboyne will also be open Monday to Friday from 9am to 12.30pm and 1.30pm to 5pm.
The local policing team can still be contacted by calling 101 for non-urgent calls or by dialling 999 in an emergency. E-mail communication can also be made through the Police Scotland website.
