The 60-year-old Inverell Police Station is no longer, after it was levelled on Monday to make way for a brand new, state-of-the-art, 24-hour station.
Demolition of the old building began early last month and on Monday it was completed with the 60-year-old station reduced to a pile of rubble.
It has now been removed ready for the construction of the new, much-larger 24-hours station on the same site.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall said the new station will comfortably accommodate the current 50-plus-strong local police force and further growth in numbers.
"It will also have more facilities to assist the police in performing their duties and keeping us safe," he said.
Mr Marshall said the project is expected to take around 14 months to complete.
In the meantime, policing continues as normal in Inverell, out of a temporary station established in Campbell Street.
