Erinsborough Community Centre 2012-
Burrow Street, Erinsborough, Victoria, 9571

In 2012, local councillor Ajay Kapoor passed a bill to merge the local Police Station with a nearby station. In it's place, opened a new Community Centre, designed to assist in lowering crime rates by offering after-school clubs and classes for the community.

Having been redecorated with a bright colour scheme inside and out, the centre opened soon after, offering a wide variety of classes from Art and Cookery to Yoga and Pole Dancing.

First seen on screen in episode 27 when Danny Ramsay and Scott Robinson were taken in for questioning over neighbour Carol Brown's accusations that Danny mugged her, Erinsborough Police Station is home to the Metropolitan Police Force who are entrusted with keeping the streets of Erinsborough safe.

It was not however until episode 386 that the exterior of the station was seen, with Daphne Clarke bailing Kelly Morgan out after being arrested for stealing the handbag of Daphne's mother-in-law, Eileen.

Intermittent appearances followed over the years, but with Ramsay Street resident Stuart Parker joining the force in 2004 a regular location was introduced using office space at Global Studios where Neighbours is filmed. The station included a reception area, office space & an interview room.

2010 saw the construction of a number of new permanent sets complete with working interiors, the largest being a new Police Station featuring several interior rooms and office spaces.

In 2011, the Erinsborough Police underwent investigation for corruption which ran deeply through the force. Detective Mark Brennan, a key witness in the case went into the Witness Protection Programme as a result, however he was found soon after.

In 2012, Erinsborough Police Station was closed following a merger with a nearby station.
