I served at this Police Station as an Inspector from 1972 to 1974. The Divisional Commander was Superintendent Les Barnard. Good days and it was a pleasure to serve with good professional coppers

This photo brings back a lot of memories.In the mid sixties,I worked for The Co-op Dairy and was based at the depot in Chapeltown road.The police station was on my run and I supplied them with milk and Butter.Luckily,my timing was good and I usually arrived at the early morning shift change as the blokes on the night shift came in for breakfast.The cook,nicknamed Dixie,used to start with a huge iron frying pan cooking up the bacon and eggs and when he got towards the end of the session there was so much bacon fat in the pan that the eggs were literally deep fried ! footnote: I always managed to score the odd free breakfast!!

This was quite typical of the design of public buildings in City of Leeds, Library, Police Station on the corner and Fire station. Dates back to the time when the fire brigade was run by and a part of the Police force. The old Dewsbury Road police station?library is a mirror image of this one, I served at both during the 70s and early 80s

I was a patrol sergeant here from November 1977 to September 1978. As with other former Leeds City Police Stations, the name came from the address rather than the area. In this case it was Chapeltown Road. I've never heard it referred to within the police as Chapel Allerton Police Station.

This has always been Chapeltown Police Station. It was never Chapel Alperton Police Station. Though we all know why a handful will only accept Chapel Alperton Police Station which officially never, ever existed.
