Daniel recently transferred to South Yorkshire from The Met, he said “My partner and I had decided that we needed to leave London so we could afford to buy our first home. We weren’t set on where our next move would be. I saw a video from the Chief Constable of South Yorkshire and he looked professional and spoke really passionately. I thought ‘that is the force I want to go to, if this is the way the person at the top speaks then it must trickle down to the rest the force.

“I wanted to be part of a force where I would be treated as an individual, not just a number, and be recognised for what you can bring to the table.

“The transfer process was brilliant. I had one point of contact. I was updated on what was happening regularly and I had the number of somebody I could call if I had any issues or questions. Every step of the way I was kept informed, there was no second-guessing or need to chase up where things were.

“The whole process was was quick and understandable; I had a list of what I needed to do and what I should expect. Settling in was fine, everyone was really welcoming and I felt supported.”
