Schiller Avenue Police Station

Trenton Sunday Times-Advertiser, August 23, 1959
This building is located at 531 Schiller Avenue.  It was built by Hamilton Township in 1916 as the municipal police headquarters.  It was a small cement block building with two small cells in the rear and a small courtroom and officers quarters in the front.  The State Department of Institutions and Agencies disapproved this small jail and requested the erection of a new jail.  The  police department occupied its newly constructed headquarters on Harrison and Lafayette Avenues in 1928.
