Student Officer Recruitment

We are not currently recruiting at this time for Student Police Constables for South Yorkshire Police. When we do next open up recruitment this will be advertised on this webpage with all the details you will need.


If you're enthusiastic, adaptable, compassionate, collaborative and 18 or over, then you may be who we're looking for.

You need to be prepared for a varied job; a job that is as much about supporting victims, providing reassurance and building relationships as it is about flashing lights and handcuffing offenders.

It's a unique role with unique demands that are ever-changing. You need to be adaptable to change and ready to think on your feet.

Please keep an eye on this webpage for details in the future about our next recruitment campaign and how to apply.
