Transferees - PCs, DCs and authorised firearms officers

Transfer to SYP and join our quest to be the best

South Yorkshire Police is on a ‘quest to be the best’. Can you bring your skills to our organisation and help us continue to progress? We’re seeking a number of high-calibre transferees to join us from other Home Office forces.

We aim to attract Police Constables, Detective Constables and Authorised Firearms Officers to transfer to our ranks in early 2017.

This is your opportunity to join talented, committed colleagues at our forward-thinking police force, and to use your skills and knowledge to help us achieve our ambitions.

Chief Constable Stephen Watson said: “If you are a serving officer who has the energy and enthusiasm to help with South Yorkshire Police’s mission to be the best force in the country, we are eager to hear from you.

“Good policing makes a real difference to people’s lives and brings about a deep sense of job satisfaction. Our officers are valued members of the community and those who choose to transfer to South Yorkshire will likely find their role will be challenging, but also very rewarding.

“We’re seeking compassionate people who are resilient and can readily adapt to quickly changing circumstances. In return, we offer a stimulating environment and broad opportunities for career progression.”

For many serving officers, this could provide a great new challenge in a great new location. Sheffield, Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham offer the challenges of urban policing and the attractions of city life, while the Peak District on our doorstep presents rural duties, alongside recreational activities while off duty.

Over the next few months, South Yorkshire Police will publish case studies from current officers who have transferred from other forces for various reasons, including for family and quality of life.
