Colac’s multi-million-dollar police station is on track to open in three months, giving officers and specialist units state-of-the-art facilities to work from.

The $11.47-million building will replace Colac’s outdated police station on the corner of Queen and Dennis streets, which has served the community since the 1930s and had an extension in the late 1970s.

Sergeant Jonathan Parish of Colac police said contractors had completed a majority of the external framework and that workers would begin to focus on completing the building’s interior.

“Meetings have been held on site to discuss the internal fitouts of the building,” he said.
