This site is now occupied by the Si Yuan School of Precious Blood. Current Police station now sits just behind and is the NT South Regional Police HQ / Operational Base.

The first police station in Tsuen Wan was opened in July 1911, to be replaced by a new building in 1959. This was in turn superseded by a new District HQ/Police Station in August 1991.

Many thanks. I've changed the place dates.

Hi There,

Walked by the area earlier today and found part of the boundary wall and one turret are still there.  It is now a Catholic School running by the Prescious Blod Nuns.  Not sure about the school building though.

The new Police Station is the high rise behind it.

Just look at the comparative size of the buildings ?

Has the crime rate in Tsuen Wan truly increased so much to justify this ...... ?

Or is this simply "empire building" ?
