Hamilton police station
Victorian Parliament - 22 February 2017 - Ms Kealy - The Hamilton police station is in dire need of renovation, with the current building significantly restricting the ability of police to manage interactions with the community. The Hamilton holding cells are in an unacceptable condition to hold suspects under arrest for more than a few hours. Bail justices are hearing cases in the interview room, being spat on and putting themselves at risk when dealing with aggressive drug‑affected individuals. Our police and bail justices are doing a fantastic job under very difficult conditions. It is essential that the government provide suitable premises to support our police and bail justices.
