Driver Manoeuvring Area

Driver Training will also utilise the latest technology, replacing the old ‘skid pan’ at Crofton with a driver manoeuvring area where a skid car will sit upon a purpose built remote controlled frame to allow trainers to recreate a variety of oil free road conditions.

A wide variety of learning and development will be delivered at Carr Gate from national courses to local bespoke inputs. Opportunities to collaborate and train in partnership will be maximised.

The complex will be home to new student Police Officers and Police Community Support Officers in their first informative weeks in those roles, what better location to start a career with the police?

West Yorkshire Police has a national reputation for delivering detective training of the highest standards a tradition that will only be enhanced as the new facilities are utilised the meet the challenges of modern day policing. Courses specific to issues such as cyber-crime are being delivered to meet current investigative challenges.

As can be seen the facilities at Carr Gate are world class and it is the desire of West Yorkshire Police that they are used and recognised locally, nationally and internationally not just by the Police but also by our wider partners.
