Our police move in

Our police move in Image

The long awaited Southbank Police Station at 66 Moray St finally opened its doors for service this month, much to the delight of station commander Snr Sgt Steve Bills and his team.

Having operated out of the crammed and less suitably positioned St Kilda Rd Police Station for nearly 30 years, Snr Sgt Bills said they were now in an ideal location to better serve their local community.

“The station is about four times the size of what we had. We have modern, up-to-date facilities to run a professional police service from so we’re very pleased to be here,” he said.

“It’s a good location for us – better than where we were from the point of view of where the majority of our work comes from. It’s more accessible to the community that we actually service.”

The station’s response zone covers from Yarra River in the north, Punt Rd to the east, High St to the south, St Kilda Rd to Dorcas St, and Kings Way to the Westgate Freeway. It also takes in Webb Dock.

Snr Sgt Bills said the Moray St location was also perfectly placed to help police access the busy Southbank promenade and entertainment precincts.

Counter service has officially begun operating and the station’s new phone number is 8635 0900.
