Christmas Countdown

Every weekday in the run up to Christmas, Officers will be hosting Facebook Live sessions about subjects ranging from drink driving to burglary to safeguarding to protecting your devices online. Colleagues from Wakefield Council, Kirklees Council and Crimestoppers will join us as they share their messages on three of the days. Both the Chief Constable and Police & Crime Commissioner will be sharing their Christmas messages for West Yorkshire towards the end of the month.

The messages will be broadcast at 12pm every weekday and then the videos will be posted for people to replay later on if needed.
