Dormitory for police officers at Daban Police Post

The Dabang Police Dormitory, located behind the Dabang Police Post in Alishan, was used by the Governor-General in Taiwan to send officers there to supervise the local Tsou people during the Japanese occupation. Due to the changes in the Lifan Policy (Indigene Management), the Dabang Police Post had different names and functions. It was not until the legalization of the station where the officers were stationed that it was named the Dabang Police Officer Station in 1913. At that time, the police dormitory where Dabang was stationed not only provided police housing, but also hosted officials who came for inspection. After the war, the National Government changed it to a dormitory for the mayor’s family members. Currently, the building has been renovated and is being used as the Dabang Visitor Information Center.
