On the front of the police station - built in 1937 as Finanzamt - there are six stone statues on consoles.

Halberstadt - SBürger und Bürgerinnen
Top: Women with fruit and flowers respectively.
Halberstadt - SBürger und Bürgerinnen
Center: Scholar and architect.
Halberstadt - SBürger und Bürgerinnen
Bottom: Farmer (sower) and worker.

Not much is known about its history. When it became a police station in 2012, the Volksstimme wrote:

Relatively little is known about the history of the building, as a call to the urban development department of the Halberstadt city administration revealed yesterday. It is only known that it was built in 1937 and housed a financial administration. Only from 1951 there are again documents that prove the story. The SED district leadership was located there until the political change, later the tax office in Halberstadt.
