  • I used google maps and found the location of the police office.

    It is on the junction of Chertsey crescent and Overbury crescent in New Addington.

    At the time of writing (2013) it is still standing but is now the New Addington Women's centre. I assume the row of houses behind the office were police married quarters because an extension has since been built between them and the office, joining them together.
