Divisional Changes in Calderdale

The decision was made in 2000 to amalgamate the Halifax and Calder Valley Divisions into one combined division. What has emerged is a single Division whose boundaries are co-terminus with those of the Local Authority, Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council. This reinforces the principal of partnership working, brought about by the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and will serve to improve the opportunities for further effective partnership working.

The main effects of the amalgamation will be:

  • To create a unified approach in the delivery of policing services in the Calderdale area. To have a Local Authority area with the same boundary as the Police is beneficial to all, especially our partners.

  • To streamline Senior Management within the new Division and use those savings to increase the number of Constables.

  • To ensure policing performance in Calderdale is improved upon.
