Chief Constable Lauren Poultney


Hello and welcome to South Yorkshire Police.

I’m delighted to welcome you to our recruitment pages and pleased that you are considering the Force for your future.

We are one of the highest performing forces in the country and we have great aspirations to be the very best we can be for our communities. We are a full spectrum force which means we have a wide range of roles including a dog section, mounted section, specialist firearms officers and we serve a diverse mix of 1.4million people across a varied range of settings.

We have the challenges and opportunities you find in an inner city setting and the equal but different challenge of our rural communities. This means we can offer you a breadth of experience in a short time, we can keep you busy, stimulated and above all we can enable you to reach your full potential, helping us to reach ours.

We are looking for problem solvers, quick thinkers, people who care but can enforce. We’re looking for the best available and if you believe that is you, we look forward to hearing from you.

You can find details of where we are currently recruiting and details of when registration opens for new student officers and other roles, below. You can also sign up for job alerts here.
