Wakefield District Contacts

In line with Government advice around Coronavirus / COVID-19, all West Yorkshire Police Public Helpdesk facilities currently remain open for business.

Slight changes, however, have been made to the opening hours.

The Helpdesks will now be available from 8:00am 6:00pm each day, including weekends.

The only exceptions will be Bank Holidays when we will be open between 10:00am and 6:00pm

If you need to attend a public Helpdesk, could we please ask that you consider the Prime Minister’s address to the nation; limiting unnecessary journeys and remembering the 2 metre social distancing rule and only attend if absolutely necessary to ensure your safety and that of our staff.

There are various methods to contact the Police, which can be done from the safety of your own home - these include;
