Gosport Police Station 02   Gosport Police Station 03

The original Gosport Station in Upper South Street was destroyed by enemy action on the 27th February, 1941. Staff then moved to a  temporary station at 20 Bury Road until 1957, when new station opened, back in South Street. The Magistrates Court hearings were held in the Nicholson Hall, Bury Road, during this period.

Gosport Police Station 04   Gosport officers in the early 1900s

In 1887 the police station address was in Upper South Street.

The Superintendent was G. Catchlove
with Sergeants J. Gibson and E. Wyatt
and fourteen constables

Note: two officers are wearing a striped 'on duty' wrist band,
officers would travel to and from work in uniform, removing the band 
would put them, 'off duty' in the eyes of the public.

I have abridged the above from the Hampshire Constabulary History Society
