In November 1930 the county council stated that the existing Police Station and court in Hinckley were inadequate to requirements, and in February 1931 the site of the Hinckley Tuberculosis Dispensary was chosen as a suitable location. During the latter part of 1936 the building of the new Police Station commenced, and on 17th April 1937 it was formally opened. The new Police Station commanded a prominent position being on the corner of Upper Bond Street and Hollycroft Road. The main entrance to the building is at the angle of the two streets and leads into a hall, connecting with the principal court. The large hall divides the Police Station from the courts and the court offices.

In July 2011 it was deemed that the Police Station was too big to meet the needs of the areas Police team and I was far too expensive to run. During October 2012 the Police moved to the HMCS office next door to the old Police station. The building was eventually sold to be converted into flats.


Through the large main doors the original entrance hall remained very intact
