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.

A photo of the police station taken from a spot around the Pak Kung street-chatham road junction. Looking south at the Hok Yuen street junction with the station on the left. The old residential building was demolished around 2012 to make way for the Chatham gate. The station was demolished around 1979 and construction of the  east kowloon corridor was started in 1973.  So the photo must be around early 1970s or even earlier.
