The announcement came last week as Minister for Police Troy Grant delivered the news.

Police Minister Troy Grant said, “While the Karuah police might service a small community, it is vital they have a modern, permanent base to work out of, which is also inviting for the community who may need police assistance.”

Port Stephens Duty MLC Catherine Cusack said that the funding for the new Karuah Police Station will be rolled out over three years.

“I met with Karuah police late in 2017 about the need for a permanent police building.”

“Initial design concepts for the future station will be ready in early 2019,” she said.

Port Stephens Liberal candidate Jaimie Abbott said she is thrilled the Liberals and Nationals Government is investing in the Karuah community.

“The existing police station will ultimately be knocked down and a modern facility will be built on the current site, ensuring the local police have a contemporary base that will serve them well into the future,” said Ms Abbott.

Back in June, a $1 million in funding was announced for an upgrade of the Tea Gardens Police Station.
