BRIGHT is set to get a new $3.25 million police station.
On Monday the Victorian Government announced it would spend $36.8 million to replace or refurbish regional and rural police stations and residences across the state.
The Bright station was originally built in 1984 and was designed to cater for five officers.
There are now nine members working at the station including one Senior Sergeant, one Sergeant, six officers and one public servant.
Staff and offenders must share one toilet while there are no cells, meaning prisoners have to be transported to Wangaratta or Myrtleford.
The station received minor extensions in 1992 but those upgrades remain vastly inadequate.
