Welcome to ALPHA DELTA PLUS a web site for officers who served at Cannon Row Police Station, 'A' or Whitehall Division, London S.W.1. ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM.
Officers who served at other  stations on 'A' are also invited to participate.  Visitors from around the World are cordially invited to view our pages full of memories of the 'old days' spent at a famous London Police Station.


Cannon Row was one of The Metropolitan Police's more famous Central London Police Stations and formed part of the famous New Scotland Yard building designed by the highly regarded architect Norman Shaw (see image at right) in 1898.

Cannon Row Police Station opened its doors for 'business' in 1902  and finally closed in 1992 when it was amalgamated with Bow Street Police Station forming a new station, 'Charing Cross', close to the Strand WC2.

The code for the station was "AD" hence we arrive at "Alpha Delta". The 'plus' in our title refers to other units or residences that were AD's responsibility to police.
