New Police Base Opens
After the closure of several local stations, a new, expanded base has been opened to replace the Mt Roskill Station.
The building formerly housed the motorway construction offices. It offers excellent motorway and arterial road access. Area Commander for Auckland City West, Inspector Grant Teztlaff, says the station will be home to existing Mount Roskill community policing staff and will also act as a hub for other Police staff and support services in the wider Auckland City District.
“Close to 100 staff, including Community Policing teams, district road policing staff, members of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Team and CIB detectives, will be based at the station,” he says.
“The new station will mean more room for staff and an improved service for members of the Mount Roskill community, with a front counter staff member ready to help if they need it.” Lynfield and Blockhouse Bay are also serviced by this station, which is open 8am-4pm, Monday to Friday.
It was officially opened on April 20th with an opening ceremony led by Police Commissioner Andrew Coster.
You can expect to see a greater police presence in the surrounding area as they come and go from the new base.
