The refurbishment of the Koorawatha Police Station and residence is nearing completion, with a new officer starting thanks to investment from the NSW Nationals in the state government.
NSW Nationals Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke joined members of the NSW Police, Hilltops Council and the local community to welcome Senior Constable Andrew Campbell and celebrate the refurbishment work.
Repairs and upgrades to both the residence and the police station include hazmat remediation, a new roof, new air conditioning, kitchen, floor and window coverings and a septic system.
Work to install CCTV with remote access view from Young Police Station, and other security features and improvements to the police station are scheduled to be completed next month.
Ms Cooke said she was delighted at the refurbishment work.
“Koorawatha deserves a police presence and I am so pleased this residence has been brought up to scratch and will now be home to Senior Constable Campbell and his partner,” Ms Cooke said.
“I know the Koorawatha community will warmly welcome them.
“I want to congratulate Property NSW and all the local contractors who were part of this extensive work. This is an investment in community safety, local peace of mind and infrastructure.”
