'Notes for Opening of New Coober Pedy Police Station' researched by R.J. Potts, 22/11/1995 This is a history of policing in Coober Pedy which includes information about the Stuarts Range police camp: "the police station consisted of 2 ridge pole tents, two water tanks, and a large galvanised portable cell which is believed was possibly overlanded in parts from Copley."

The fire truck was located at the Station during the period of occupancy by Sgt O'Neill who assisted in the establishment of the Fire Services and was the first training officer. The truck was purchased for $14,000 following a town fund raising event. A portion of school classrooms can be seen to the right of the fire truck.
