History
The Old Tai Po Police Station was built in 1899, shortly after the British leased the New Territories in 1898. It was the first police station and police headquarters in the New Territories. It is said to have been built at the site of the British flag-raising ceremony which marked the official British take-over of the New Territories. It operated as a police station until the new district police station of Tai Po started its service in 1987.
