This week, the demolition of the old Nambour Police station got underway.
The station was constructed in the early 1960s and included three buildings containing offices, holding cells, property storage and fingerprint facilities.
The station incorporated general duties police, traffic branch, forensic crash unit, criminal investigation branch and child protection and investigation unit.
Policing needs outgrew the facility by 2006, and have been operating out of a temporary building since that time, meaning that the new police station is eagerly anticipated.
The project requires the demolition of all three of the buildings to accommodate the new station.
As a result, parking is limited for a period of time. Members of the public are asked to be mindful of the limited parking spaces, and allow extra time when attending the police station.
The new station is hoped to maximise use of the space and increase policing efficiency.
Police are eager to see the new station evolve. Watch this space!
