South Yorkshire Police - Constables, Sergeants and Inspectors (including Detectives)

Are you looking for a change of scenery and a new challenge?

South Yorkshire Police has exciting opportunities for constables, sergeants & inspectors in a number of roles including detectives, safeguarding, firearms, neighbourhood policing and response.

Repeatedly assessed as the most improved force in the country since 2016, SYP is continuing its trajectory and has ambitious plans for the future. To support our resurgence, and provide the public with the service they desire, we need to attract the very best candidates to support our existing officers and staff.

As a full-spectrum force, SYP offers a broader range of roles and fulfilment than might be available in other forces. The geography of South Yorkshire is also incredibly diverse, covering the city of Sheffield and neighbouring towns of Rotherham, Doncaster and Barnsley. In a few short miles, you can go from rugged and breath-taking countryside to vibrant urban areas, offering some of the UK’s best shopping, family attractions and nightlife.

SYP offer relocation and removal expenses up to a maximum of £8000, to transferring officers currently living outside of the force area and at least 50 miles from their permanent place of work. In addition, successful transferees and re-joiners will receive a non-consolidated payment of £2000.

Further information:

South Yorkshire Police welcomes applications from transferee officers who are currently serving with a Home Office police force and re-joiners who have previously served with a Home Office police force.

You can be the difference.  Reflecting all of our communities is important to South Yorkshire Police, which is why we are looking for talented individuals to reflect the communities we serve.

If you would like to take the challenge and have what it takes to make a real difference to peoples’ lives, we want to hear from you.

Detective Constables, Sergeants and Inspectors must be PIP 2 accredited with relevant experience in the investigation of serious and complex crime.
