The series was originally intended to be set in St Kilda, with some of the sets constructed being replicas of the charge counter and Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) room at the St Kilda police station. When the St Kilda City Council objected to the series and claimed that it would do great harm to the property values and image of the suburb, the series concept was changed and it was set in the fictitious suburb of Yarra Central.

A classic police drama set in Yarra Central Police Station, Melbourne
I am so disappointed that I have to wait till 3 am (to 4am) to watch repeats of this old Australian police drama series. It is just as entertaining now as it was back then. We return back to black & white colour and the slower pace of Australian life in Melbourne. It is so cool to see the cars and fashion of the late 60's and early to mid 70's and the genuine Aussie characters, many of whom having appeared in other Aussie shows. It is also fun to note and compare the changes in law today. The cops really make this show. I enjoy watching these repeats so much, and as I said earlier, disappointed at the late 3 am start. It would be a lot better deal if the money-hungry "Quizmania" was scrapped and Division 4 brought forward to the 12 to 12.30 am time slot. With 300 by 50 minute episodes this series would be very welcome on DVD. I hope other viewers feel the same. Perhaps we might see a DVD release in the future.
