Is there a difference between Police office and Police station? What's the difference and how do you use them differently?

In the US, it’s referred to as Police Station. I’ve never heard anyone say Police Office. I suppose if there was some separate administrative building, maybe someone would refer to the Police Office?

I'm a US native speaker. I've never heard the phrase "police office." You might be thinking of "police officer." An "officer" is a person with an official duty. In the United States, "policeman" or "policewoman" is a slightly informal word; "police officer" is the correct, respectful term; "cop" is informal.
