The NSW Government is continuing to deliver its commitment to ensure the safety and wellbeing of Police officers and the community following a multi-million dollar upgrade at Gosford Police Station.

Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott today joined Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch and Taylor Martin MLC to inspect the works.


“The NSW Government continues to deliver on its commitment to invest in policing infrastructure to enhance the vital work of our men and women in blue,” Mr Elliott said.


“The Central and Mid North Coast regions of NSW will reap the benefits of a $26 million investment in community safety, with six new or upgraded police stations delivered or soon to be operational.”


The $3.5 million dollar enhancement of Gosford Police Station includes upgrades to the charge area, improvements to the front enquiry area and air conditioning.


Mr Crouch welcomed the investment in ensuring front-line workers are provided with up-to-date facilities.


“Over the past two years the inside of Gosford Police Station has undergone a makeover and I am delighted to join Minister Elliott for a first look at the new state-of-the-art facilities,” Mr Crouch said.


“Our local Police now have fresh and modern facilities and equipment needed to prevent and disrupt crime in our community.”


Mr Martin said it is vital to continue supporting Police with modern infrastructure as well as extra officers on the beat to assist them in keeping our community safe.


“The Government has already announced an addition three police positions for the Brisbane Water Police District as part of our $583 million investment in police numbers over four years,” Mr Martin said.
