Once again another cosmetic lot you could toss a rabbit hole rug into. This time a Victorian-styled police station. Initial inspiration came from the old Kokomo City Building, but final inspiration settled on the old Northern District Police Station of Baltimore, Maryland.

The ground floor has a central hall with the reception counter and stairs leading up. It is flanked on one side by a cafeteria (with the coffee bar from Uni) and booking (with a place for mugshots) on the other. Across the back is a room for a police line-up, an interrogation room (in which to play good cop/developmentally disabled bad cop), a drunk tank, and individual jail cells. The middle floor has a briefing room, individual offices, locker room with restrooms, and a science lab. The top floor has a bullpen office, a single target shooting range with storage, and a lounge with entertainment and exercise options.

The police station is furnished, but decorated minimally.

No CC or Store content was used.

A fair bit of CFE was used on the top floor and roof, so exercise extreme caution modifying anything up there. That being said, aside from the stairs, adjusting the layout of the ground and middle floors to suit your needs should be easy.

Lot Size: 40x30
Lot Price (furnished): 272,737
Lot Price (unfurnished): 169,147

Number of bedrooms: Not Applicable
Custom Content Included: None
Furnishings: Fully Furnished
Special Flags: Not Applicable

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

really nice building , got me inspired to make a british victorian manor. How did you make the roof facade at the front? I see you used the "constrainfloorelevation" cheat and fences , but I can't figure out how exactly.

Was wanting to do a somewhat industrial/hipster art house for a large "family" of roomies and this is just perfect. Thanks!!!! Going to have to change a few things in it but I want it to have that Old like Police Station vibe still in it.
