Second generation Hung Hom Police Station was located at the junction Chatham Road North and Hok Yuen Street. It can be located on the 1956 Kowloon map on Gwulo.

Simtang pointed out that works for the police station building commenced in 1949, and the station was opened in 1950. The station was demolished when Chatham Road was widened; it is still there on an aerial photo from December 1977, and gone on one from September 1979.

On the two maps below from 1978 and 1979 the vanishing of the station can be seen. Only an annex behind the former building (garage?) is left.
