About the force
West Yorkshire Police provides policing services to the county of West Yorkshire. The police force area covers 783 square miles in the north of England.
Although there are a number of more affluent areas, West Yorkshire has a high level of poverty.
Around 2.3 million people mainly live in the urban conurbation which includes the cities of Leeds, Wakefield and Bradford, as well as several large towns surrounded by rural areas. The resident population is ethnically diverse, with 18 percent from black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, and is increased by the very large number of university students and the large numbers, who visit, socialise in, commute into, or travel through the area each year.
The transport infrastructure includes major rail stations and an airport.
