Olar Police Station.

Another Smallest Police Station

It is just like the small police station in Ridgeway, South Carolina. I just wanted to let you folks know.

[Margaret Chassereau, 04/20/2013]

The shed-size police building in Olar actually looks a bit smaller than the one in Ridgeway. But there's no "smallest" sign to lock in a claim, and it doesn't appear to be regularly staffed. Maybe just storage for riot gear when Olar misbehaves every 50 years? A police station in Florida is even smaller. It's the size of a phone booth.
