Marine Police Aberdeen Base, built near the Brick Hill Marine Police Pier which opened in 1965.

tngan gave a comment regarding the pier and the Marine Police Station:

I believe they have expanded the pier and the South Marine Police HQ moved there in the late 1980s\early 1990s after they closed down the old brickwork on the slopes (which become Ware House).
