The police station adjoining the Bargate on its west side was established in c.1836 when Southampton's first official police force came into being. In 1906 the new law courts were built next to, and adjoining, the police station. In 1932 both the police station and law courts were moved to the Civic Centre to make way for the ring road around the Bargate.
