משטרת רחובות
בסוף שנות השלושים - ימי המאורעות בארץ - הקימה הממשלה הבריטית כמה תחנות משטרה ברחבי הארץ. חלק מהן הוקם על הגבול בצפון הארץ, וחלק אחר במקומות בעלי ערך ביטחוני מיוחד. אחד היישובים האלה היתה רחובות. בניין המשטרה נבנה לפי תכנית של המהנדס הבריטי צ’רלס טיגארט, ועל שמו נקרא גם הבנין - משטרת טיגארט.
עם סיום המנדט הבריטי, עבר הבניין לידי כוחות הצבא הישראלי, ומאז הוא עומד לרשות משטרת ישראל. בראשית שנות החמישים שימשה הקומה הראשונה לכל הפעילויות המשטרתיות, ואילו בקומה השנייה והשלישית גרו שוטרי התחנה.

Rehovot police
In the late 1930s - the days of riots in the country - the British government set up several police stations across the country. Some of them were established on the border in the north of the country, and others in places of special security value. One of these communities was Rehovot’s . The police building was built according to a plan by British engineer Charles Tegartand named after him - the Tegart Police Department.
When the British mandate was completed, the building was transferred to Israeli military forces and has been available to the Israeli police since then. In the early 1950s, the first floor was used for all police activities, while on the second and third floors the station police officers lived.
