The South Yorkshire Police Doncaster Central team are looking to recruit new officers, particularly ones that live in the town.

PCSO Andy Ireland explained: “SYP are continuing to recruit officers. We have made great strides in our journey to becoming an outstanding organisation in all respects and our force encompasses the full spectrum of policing which offers a broader range of roles and fulfilment than might not be available in some other forces.

"We have been repeatedly assessed as the most improved force in the country since 2016. Our trajectory is entirely possible and we have ambitious plans for the future.
