The Hong Kong Police Magazine of September 1952 notes that the Pat Heung Police Station was opened on 8 September 1952. In general, the design of the station is similar to four other police stations recently built in the N.T..

The December 1951 Police Magazine notes that the present Kam Tin Police Station was a requisitioned house standing only a few hundred yards from the airfield at Sek Kong. Plans were afoot to erect a new police station on the same style as Castle Peak and Tsun Wan (Tsuen Wan) police stations. (I think the planned police station would later become the Pat Heung Police Station). I do note from Wikipedia that the old Sha Tin Police Station was built in 1950.
