Bethnal Green police station has been reopened by Met Commissioner Cressida Dick.
Closed last year for refurbishments, Dame Cressida was on hand at the weekend to unveil the revamped facility.
New video-recorded interview suites have been installed as part of the refurbishment, intended to make giving statements easier for vulnerable victims.
Personal touches - including wall murals which depict the history of Tower Hamlets - have also been added.
Det Insp Chris Heathcote told the Advertiser: "We are thrilled that the new-look Bethnal Green showcases the unique history of policing Tower Hamlets and the East End.
"This will help connect our officers and staff even more closely to the area and people they service.
