Text sizing

The site is designed to allow you to alter the text size of the fonts on the screen, use the 'Text Size A A A' links at the top of the page. Font size can also be adjusted further in your browser, or on your device.


Text / Screen Reader

Upon feedback from our audience, we have removed our previous screen reading software. There are many browser based, or system based screen reading systems available. Follow the links to find out more.


Text translation - Google Translate

This site offers Google Translate which attempts to automatically translate text on this site. Scroll to the top of any page and use the drop down menu to translate to a number of languages.

Note as with any automatic translation system, using Google translate is only meant to be a guide - and West Yorkshire Police cannot guarantee its accuracy. Google Translate is therefore to be used at your own risk.



We aim to use descriptive alternative (ALT) text for all images used on the site.
