Let's say that I'm in a city I don't know well, and I want to learn where is a police station.
How should I ask about it?
Excuse me, where is a police station?
Excuse me, where is the police station?

@Nat093,
u can use 'THE' artice, becoz it refers to particular police station (nearby or regional police station)
