The Police Station / 警岗

The good thing about living in Hong Kong is that disused facilities and derelict buildings can be well preserved, especially when one finds them hidden in the jungle. It was the case for this very small police station, abandoned since 2013. Everything around was peaceful and quiet, and I was lucky enough not to walk in a stray dog area. Unexpectedly, whereas it used to be a law-enforcement facility, all the doors were unlocked, no guard was around.

Inside, all the private and sensitive information had been removed (fortunately!) but one could still trace back the daily work organization of the police station, their schedule, their procedures.

Outside, there was a small cabin for shooting practice.

While I will not disclose the location of this place, I can just say is a bit strange that it was located in such a remote area… The new police station is much more central…
