A plaque is mounted on a building shard from the Central Police Station, bordered by a fire box and police call box. It is located on the east side of the Public Safety Building at 151 Princess Street near James Avenue. The shard was situated over the main entrance of the building, located at Rupert Avenue and Martha Street from 1908 to 1966. The red fire box to the left of it was in use from 1882 to 1979. The blue police call box to the right was in use from 1913 to 1979.
