The Central Police Station, the Central Magistrate Court, and the Victoria Prison, were built in the 19th Century. Together they formed a complete system for law enforcement. The buildings in the compound were declared heritage monuments in 1995. Right after the buildings were decommissioned in 2006, award-winning photographer Leong Ka Tai comprehensively photographed the compound. The site has now undergone extensive renovation and has been transformed into a cultural/commercial complex.
