Palmerston Police Station

Latest update

This project is now complete.

The Northern Territory Government is improving safety in the Palmerston and surrounding areas through building a new police facility on the corner of Temple Terrace and Farrah Boulevard.

The new Palmerston Police Station will provide Palmerston and rural residents with a modern policing facility that will accommodate the region’s needs for effective contemporary policing for at least the next 30 years.

The police facility will:

  • include a new Police Station and Watch House which will provide 24 hour police services for the Palmerston and regional area
  • enable up to 200 police to deliver key policing outcomes into the future in this growth area and will provide a more central physical presence than the existing police station to demonstrate a strong police presence
  • include a secure front counter, multiple meeting/ interview rooms and a waiting area with toilets and shower
  • a new Emergency Response Operations Centre, providing Emergency Services a dedicate location to services the Palmerston region.
