Rolt Heights [89,12]
Younghusband Square Police Department is a police department located in the suburb of Rolt Heights along the border with Pescodside to the east. Built in 1967, the police precinct was named in honour of the famous British army officer, Sir Francis Edward Younghusband (1863-1942), the very same man after whom Younghusband Square had also been named. It's said that locals, unfamiliar with the man, for a time went to Baylie Library to research the man, but stopped after several learned other more horrific and mind-shattering truths about the universe from the forbidden tomes hidden within the library. This led people to Google his name instead, and reduce the burden on local insane asylums. Of course these local "historians" (aka, "Googleologists"), were quick to point out that Younghusband was in fact a very fascinating man, taking special care to refer to one particular historical event which they often retold to local students... or anyone who would stay long enough to listen to their ramblings:
"In 1889, Sir Francis Edward Younghusband was dispatched with a small escort of Gurkha soldiers to survey an uncharted region of the Hunza valley and the Khunjerab Pass through the Karakoram mountain range. Whilst encamped in a remote area of Hunza, Younghusband received a messenger at his camp, inviting him to dinner with Captain Bronislav Gromchevsky, his Russian counterpart in "The Great Game". Younghusband accepted the invitation to Gromchevsky's camp, and after dinner the two rivals talked into the night, sharing brandy and vodka, and discussing the possibility of a Russian invasion of British India. Gromchevsky impressed Younghusband with the horsemanship skills of his Cossack escort, and Younghusband impressed Gromchevsky with the rifle drill of his Gurkhas. After their meeting in this remote frontier region, Gromchevsky resumed his expedition in the direction of Kashmir and Younghusband continued his exploration of Hunza."
What all of this had to do with the police station itself is anyone's guess, but it certainly whiled away the time and distracted people from the other more terrible secrets that haunted Rolt Heights. Like why the sewers below the suburb's streets ran thick with blood at midnight during every full moon or the unspeakable "thing" that lurked in Copeland Alley in the dead of night. Those sorts of things.
Noted NecroTech scientist, Caleb Usher, was last seen at the police station over a year ago, during which time he assisted survivors while working out of the nearby hospitals as they fought against various zombie elements from the Drunken Dead.
1) To serve and protect all survivors within a 3x3 block grid (south) of the precinct.
2) To maintain resource building barricades at Very Strongly.
3) To maintain non-resource building barricades within a 3x3 block grid at Extremely Heavily. These buildings will act as safe houses for Free Runners attacking zombie groups in the area.

To date police and military personnel stationed at Younghusband Square PD commonly work with survivors located in nearby resource buildings, namely:
Barricades are to be kept at Very Strongly (VS+2) during times when zombie numbers are fewer than 5 within a 2x2 block grid. Should zombie numbers rise above this or reports of nearby resources buildings being overrun be confirmed, then barricades will be raised to Extremely Heavily.
At this time Free Running is essential to entering and departing the Younghusband Square PD and all low-level survivors trapped outside should find shelter at nearby non-resource building further north of the station.
