Among the early titles considered for the series were "Saints and Sinners", which would have been appropriate for the St. Kilda setting of its early development, and "Police File", a title first used after the concept was changed, which Crawford Productions weren't happy with. In their search for another name, one of the titles suggested was "Department 24", a throwback to the successful Crawfords radio serial "D24", which had evolved into the television series Homicide (1964). A secretary preparing a list from the suggestions mistyped "Department 24" as "Division 4", a title that struck a chord when the list was presented, and was subsequently adopted as the title for the new series.

We are lucky to live in rural Australia where we can get the show. I am loving Division Four as well as Matlock Police and I don't mind what time it is shown as I always tape it. None of my friends in the city can get WIN. These 2 cops shows are the best no swearing, and I also love checking out all the fantastic old Holdens and also the fashions worn back then. These have to be 2 of the best shows ever made, and the music at the beginning of the show is also fantastic! I grew up watching this show and what a wonderful walk down memory lane! I have written to WIN to thank them for showing it.I feel sorry for people who have never seen this show. Modern day cops shows are pathetic, too much violence and swearing, and the characters in Division 4 you can relate to, plus Kevin is really spunky!! My husband reckons Margaret is alright too!!
