In the novels, the station is described as being the same as a prefectural police headquarters outside of Academy City, a box of thick reinforced concrete with reinforced glass windows and no unnecessary decorations, being a government office. A tall fence surrounds the station to impede escapees.
In the anime adaptations, it is a large building, several stories in height and can contain hundreds of people inside it. The building bears the symbol of Anti-Skill, and also holds large communications equipment on top of it's roof.
The general reception area is a lobby much like one in a city hall or bank. There are several counters lined up alongside each other, with the booths numbered. There is also a machine which gives out numbered tickets. Unlike banks or hospitals, there are not TVs set up. The area is generally used by normal people who come in for ordinary matters such as lost items and renewing licenses. There is a bulletin board covered in posters with advice for avoiding bank transfer scams and for fire safety as well as appeals for information concerning missing or unidentified items and individuals. There is also a section for posters of wanted criminals, many with reward money offered.
The station's third floor has an interrogation room, with a monitoring room next to it, as well as a storeroom and an employee nursery. The contents of the storeroom include special cash, official counterfeit money meant to fool hostage-takers and scammers, marked with a special perfume which only trained dogs can detect.
The building has an emergency power generator.
