Another reason to head to Scotland:

When the group decided to hold a "Paint It" day at the park, it seemed logical to include the police box in the plans, despite the lack of contact with the owners.

Ms Thurrott said: "We thought if we're going to be improving it, how can you object to somebody painting it and making it look better than it did before?"

Decorator Gordon Walls agreed to do the work at a reduced rate, and painted the box what Ms Thurrott described as "Dr Who blue", with gold trim.
After googling around a bit, I discovered that some localities are bringing them back into use, and that in Edinburgh, "many are now run by the Police Box Coffee Company." Coffee in a police box? I am so there.
