A precinct (or police station) is a building which serves as the headquarters of a police force or unit which serves a specific district. These buildings typically contain offices, various accommodations for their personnel and their vehicles such as locker rooms, temporary holding cells, and interview/interrogation rooms.

Each precinct is responsible for safety and law enforcement within a designated geographic area. Police units based in these precincts patrol and respond to emergencies.

The term precinct is used by the New York City Police Department and other urban police departments in the United States.
