Belconnen Police Station - quiet last Thursday evening.

This station was built in either 1971 or 1976, depending on which version of the local history you read. The remand centre next door was completed in 1976, but has now been decommissioned. It's a 24-hour police station, serving 25 suburbs and 90,000 people, with six patrol teams, and not enough room. Consequently, a new station is currently under construction, and should open this year. Apparently in the new building, the boys (and girls) in blue will be going quite green!
