A striking, new nearly $15 million police station has officially opened in the heart of Inverell, the 37th police station built or significantly upgraded since 2011 and the fourth this year.

The Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott, joined the Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall and NSW Police Force Commissioner Michael Fuller APM, at a formal ceremony, including the NSW Police Band, to officially open the new Inverell Police Station.

Mr Elliott said the impressive new two-storey facility houses general duties, specialist and tactical officers, including a dog handler and highway patrol officers.

“The Inverell Police Station is yet another boost to the public safety of NSW and is part of the $108 million Multipurpose Police Station Program, that is committed to upgrading smaller regional and metropolitan police station.”

“This station will house the growing number of police officers in the New England Police District, which has already added eight extra permanent positions since the NSW Government’s commitment to deliver an extra 1500 police officers over four years,” Mr Elliott said.

Mr Marshall said the station includes dedicated spaces for crime prevention and investigative units, as well as the unique inclusion of a dedicated police forensic facility within the complex.

“This station is a testament to this government’s election commitment to invest in a police station infrastructure program to support the vital work of our policemen and women,” Mr Marshall said.

“Designed to enhance connectivity with the neighbouring court complex, the facility also provides extra space and resources to support the growing number of police allocated to the region.”

The new Inverell Police Station will be staffed and operate 24 hours, seven days a week.
