Gungahlin temporary station to be closed

Media statement

ACT Policing has decided to close the temporary Front Office facility located at Gungahlin Police Station. 

The facility was enacted on 6 March 2024 in response to a contamination issue at the Gungahlin Joint Emergency Services Centre.   

While every effort was made to provide a safe, secure, and workable office presence in Gungahlin, issues have since been identified that have not been able to be satisfactorily resolved.    

At this stage it is unclear if another temporary facility will open, with alternatives currently being assessed.    

Police attached to Gungahlin Police Station will continue to begin and end their shifts at the former ACT Policing Traffic Operations Centre in Belconnen. 

Members of the community who have bail reporting obligations are encouraged to attend Belconnen Police Station. Alternatively, the intercom system at the front of Gungahlin Station is available for use – if members of the public do choose to use the intercom facilities (which utilises high-definition CCTV, and can be monitored live), please have a form of identification readily available, such as a driver's licence, proof of age card, or passport.
