The new $5 million police station will provide separate accommodation for police and Service Tasmania.
When it opened in 1967, the building was the headquarters of the Central Police District, with a complement of a superintendent, inspector, sergeant, detective sergeant, senior constable, nine constables and two junior constables, responsible for about 17,000 square kilometres of central Tasmania. The station was built with provision for the addition of a second floor which never eventuated.
Staffing of the New Norfolk Police Station is presently one sergeant and 11 constables in New Norfolk, with a further two officers expected to be appointed in two years time.
