Opening Hours for Police Stations during COVID19 Lockdown, South Australia

In line with new COVID-19 Directions which came into effect at 6.00 pm Tuesday 20 July 2021, some metropolitan police stations will be closed effective midday today. This will allow staff from the closed stations to be redeployed to assist with duties during the seven day lockdown.

The 24 hour SAPOL police stations that will remain open between Wednesday 21 July 2021 and 6.00 pm on Tuesday 27 July 2021 are as follows:

  • ADELAIDE: 28 – 30 Hindley Street, Adelaide
  • ADELAIDE: 176 Grenfell Street, Adelaide
  • CHRISTIES BEACH: 94 Dyson Road, Christies Beach

The following police stations will remain open between 9.00 am until 9.00 pm everyday:

  • HOLDEN HILL: 2A Sudholz Road, Gilles Plains
  • STURT: 333 Sturt Road, Bedford Park

Stations that will be closed are Aldinga, Netley, Glenelg, Henley Beach, Norwood, Salisbury and Golden Grove.

Assistant Commissioner Scott Duval said there will be no change to operational services provided by police in these areas.

“It is important to remember that the location of our ‘bricks and mortar’ stations does not impact on how long it takes police to respond to a call for assistance,” he said.

“General duties patrols are mobile and respond to tasking wherever they may be. If we receive a call from the public the closest available patrol will assist.”

Members of the public should report anything suspicious by calling the Police Assistance Line on 131 444.

In an emergency dial Triple Zero (000), and if you want to provide information that may help solve a crime or about criminal activity, please call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

A range of services are also offered online – for community members who want to report lost property, a minor collision, or cybercrime – please visit the SA Police website at

For people who report to the effected police stations on bail, appropriate changes will be made and communicated to report to another station (if that condition is still required).

Those requiring a Justice of the Peace service should visit:
