Working for the police

Are you looking for a career that’s a bit different? A job where every day is never the same? A career that offers new experience and challenges and real sense of achievement?

South Yorkshire Police can offer you all of the above and much more. Everyone’s job in the Force plays a vital role in keeping South Yorkshire a safe place to visit, work or live in.

We need people with strong interpersonal skills and the ability to sometimes deal with difficult, confrontational and stressful situations - not just as officers, but also in support staff roles from call handling and catering to scenes of crime and forensic experts, and from entry level to senior management. In return you can expect a rewarding and fulfilling career.
