Moddsey found this description of the Police Station:

1900 PWD Annual Report

A new Police Station was built on a site selected above the Cattle Depot on the road leading to Pokfulam and completed on 1 October 1900.

The previous Police Station in Kennedy Town (see http://gwulo.com/node/17695) had been converted for use as a hospital.

The marker location is a guess. I haven't seen it marked on any maps yet - if you know where it was, please let us know. [UPDATED: Marker moved to correct position based on comments below.]

Jade Ling posted a 1930's map where the location is shown. The marker should be more to the east at the bend of todays Pokfield Road.

Thanks Jade and Klaus, I've moved the marker to the correct location.

Looking at the maps at http://www.hkmaps.hk/mapviewer.html, I see that "Map 1922" is a good one for locating Police Stations.
