Ch Supt John HoltWelcome from Divisional Commander 
Ch Supt John Holt

The Huddersfield Division serves a diverse cultural and racial population consisting of approximately 208,026 people, of whom 9% are from ethnic minority communities.

The Division covers an area of 125 square miles, with a total of 83,935 households. Situated in the heart of the Pennines and bordering South Yorkshire, Lancashire and Derbyshire the town itself is surrounded by a very large rural area.

The town centre is busy throughout the day and night with people travelling in to shop during the day and to eat and drink at the many pubs, restaurants and night clubs during the evening.

Welcome to Huddersfield Division

Many diverse industries now exist within the Division. Formerly large textile and engineering companies were a main source of employment, but following a period of recession these industries have now declined, and been replaced by smaller industrial units and companies.

Huddersfield is the administrative centre for the Kirklees Metropolitan Council. Apart from its fine historic Victorian buildings, and industrial and commercial centres the town is surrounded by scenery as picturesque as you would wish to find anywhere in rural England. Hamlets nestle close to the sides of steep valleys which rise up to the moors which signal the start of the Pennine range.
