Trivia

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.

Division Four
15 August 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

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!!
