The new police station provides state-of-the-art facilities for local officers.
Officially opened by Minister for Police and Emergency Services, The Hon. David Elliott and NSW Police Commissioner Michael Fuller APM, the new state-of-the-art police station contains a regional police charge facility, a breath analysis and drug testing facility, work spaces, secure parking for police vehicles and a gym. The new modern station replaces the previous building on the site which dated back to 1886.
This project has many unique features specific to a police station such as the design of cells with concrete benches in accordance with the Police Building Code. The large internal atrium through the centre of the building showcases an oversized skylight of 60 sqm.
The new station is also unique, with the inclusion of the ‘Police Legacy Walk’ – a dedicated walkway, constructed at the entrance to the new Taree Police Station, with specially engraved pavers of officer’s names past and present, with members of the NSW Police Force and the public able to ‘buy a brick’ and have their name etched into Taree’s history.
