The state government has released the first designs of a new state-of-the-art police station for South Melbourne.

The new and upgraded 24-hour station at the corner of 142 Dorcas St will provide modern facilities for Victoria Police, featuring modern custody and interview rooms, large training rooms and secure parking for police vehicles.

A tender for the $52 million construction will be released in the coming months, inviting builders to enter a formal submission to build the new station.

The station is part of the government’s record investment of $4.5 billion to deliver more than 3600 new sworn police officers, as well as state-of the-art intelligence systems, infrastructure, and new technology.

Since 2014 the government has delivered more than $423 million to build 19 new police stations and upgrade 15 more across Victoria.

Victorian MP for Albert Park Nina Taylor said the investments were all “about making sure Victoria Police has all the resources they need to keep the community safe.”

“We’re delivering modern police stations equipped with future-proofed design features, so our police have the facilities they need now and into the future,” Ms Taylor said.
