  • Temporary Police Station near Miller's Court

    I found a few brief mentions of this but no real discussion. I had never heard of this before and wondered if this was found to be factual at all? The article states the temporary station was within a few yards of the crime scene and was a place where "officers issued hourly to patrol the district". If this were true, why would Bowyer head to the Commercial Street station to fetch an officer, unless, this station mentioned was unknown to the public.

    No fewer than four police stations

    May be a ring of truth to it? According to this clip.

      Hey Jerry

      The four stations were Leman St (HQ), Commercial St, Arbour Sq and Shadwell.

      The report you cite is confused. The temporary Stations are fixed points, one of which was located outside Christ Church. No patrols left these, and they were manned at set times. Cannot recall the exact times, but H manned theirs until 7am, so it was empty when Bowyer raised the alarm.
