Detached from the main building but approached by a covered way are the kitchens, servants' quarters and offices. This building was commenced in November, 1890, and completed in July last by Mr. CHAN A TONG under contract (24/90).

From Report of the Director of Public Works for 1891

The police station is still marked on the 1957 map. It was probably demolished around 1960 when the Healthy Village public housing estate was built.
