Did you know there’s a new police station on the way for Bridgewater? From approximately mid-2024, Bridgewa­ter Division will have a temporary police station at the Brighton Civic Centre (25 Green Point Road, Bridgewater). This will be operationalised before separating from the current police station, to make sure there’s con­tinuity of service to the community.

“Police will utilise the temporary police station for day-to-day activi­ties during their shifts and continue to support New Norfolk Station,” explained Commander Jason Elmer. The New Norfolk Station (14 Bathurst St, New Norfolk) operates from 7am-2am, seven days a week.

“New Norfolk has recently experienced an increased police presence, with a number of people being charged for a range of of­fences,” said Commander Elmer. “Police will contin­ue to implement proactive strategies to prevent and detect offences, which includes active patrols by Bridgewater Division after hours.”

During the new Bridge­water Station build, there will be no reduction in police presence across the division.
