A spokesperson for South Yorkshire Police said: "Registration for our 'Could You Be A Cop?' campaign closed on January 16. We had 2,541 people registering, of whom 1,805 were eligible to go through to the next stage of the recruitment process.
"We did not have a target for the number of registrations. Our aim was to encourage as many suitably qualified applicants as possible.
