The finishing touches are being put on Cessnock’s new police station, which is expected to be open for business on Wednesday, March 3.
The new station will front Cumberland Street and will house about 100 staff – including general duties police, Hunter Valley Police District detectives, the proactive crime team, highway patrol, traffic services, events and licensing, domestic violence liaison officers and crime prevention officers – with room to grow.
“Having all of these resources under one roof, in the middle of town, is great for the community,” Cessnock Police Station officer-in-charge, Chief Inspector Michael Gorman said.
“Everyone is excited about moving in. It’s a really great opportunity to work in a state-of-the-art facility.
