Dozens of computer work stations within the ageing ACT Winchester Police Centre in Belconnen remain out of commission as a result of last week's hailstorm.
The full extent of the damage to the building is still being assessed but the intelligence area was particularly hard hit by the storm, together with the media and public engagement area. Both teams have been forced to relocate elsewhere in the building.
The crime investigations area to the north of the building was also affected.
Traffic Operations, which is run out of a separate building and garage in Lathlain St, Belconnen, was badly affected with extensive damage to its vehicle fleet.
In all, 27 police vehicles received windscreen and rear window damage as the storm passed through the Belconnen area. Of these, 17 received emergency replacements within 24 hours to keep the fleet operable.
There was no identified loss to police computer records, which are automatically backed up.
The ACT government's insurance provider will be assessing the damage.
Even the police minister's personal car, a Subaru Forester STi, was damaged in the hailstorm and will require body repairs.
It is the second time in 12 years that ACT police buildings have been hit hard by storm damage.
In February 2007, a storm hit the heritage-listed City Police Station, blocked the drains and completely flooded the executive offices. It also forced the City Watch House, underneath the station, to be evacuated.
The Insurance Council of Australia said that insurers had received 29,000 damage claims as a result of the January 20 hailstorms, which struck eastern Melbourne, the ACT and parts of NSW a week ago.
Of these claims, 56 per cent are from the ACT.
