Police defend da fence

Since August this year, a fence has graced the entry to the Grafton Police Station, posing the question – what is it for?

Grafton Police Station Acting Inspector Andrew McKay said that the reason for the fencing was due to a pathway of pavers, which have been moving.

“The pavers along the front of the station have been deemed a WH&S (Workplace, Health and Safety) issue because they have lifted over the years,” Acting Inspecting McKay said.

“They are heritage listed bricks from the old police station (which is located) in front of the current police station.

“We are not sure how long it will be before work commences. This will be guided by Properties NSW who authorise all works on police properties.

“The public can still access the front door of the Grafton Police Station, via the ramp at the side of the station, in Duke Street and there are signs on the fence directing members of the public to foyer access.

“Rest assured; we are very much open for business,” he said.
