Diagonally opposite Crawford Market, stands the Bombay Police CommissionerÕs Office complex, to which entry is restricted. Work on the two-storied Victorian Neo-Gothic structure on a 20,000 square yard plot of ground, started on November 17, 1894 and was completed on December 24, 1896. It was designed by noted architect John Adams, architectural engineer to the Bombay Government, who also designed the Royal Yacht Club and built by Harischundra Juggarnath Contractors. Unlike the Maharashtra Police Headquarters, originally the Royal Alfred Sailors Home, at Colaba, built 20 years before, yellow basalt was used for this building instead of blue basalt.Prior to the construction of the new police headquarters, the Sassoon building at Byculla, currently the anti-terrorism squadÕs headquarters, was used as the commissionerÕs office. R H Vincent, MumbaiÕs third police commissioner, was the first occupant of the new building. While the ground and first floors served as offices, the second floor housed the offices of the Superintendent of Police, Inspectors and Constables. The topmost floor housed the rooms for the servants and cooks. The structures to the west of the main building originally had 120 rooms, while those to the south housed the stables for horses of the mounted force. For the first time since it was built, this over a century old Gothic style heritage building housing the Mumbai policeÕs headquarters, is undergoing major restoration work.The restored buildingÕs ground floor will have a police museum, which will showcase exhibits evoking memories of the landmark incidents in the cityÕs crime chronicles. There will be a big library attached to the museum, as well as a spacious record and storage room.
