'You need to be prepared for a varied job; a job that is as much about supporting victims, providing reassurance and building relationships as it is about flashing lights and handcuffing offenders.

'It's a unique role with unique demands that are ever-changing. You need to be adaptable to change and ready to think on your feet.

'In return, you will have the benefit of working for a creative, forward-thinking force that is dedicated to keeping South Yorkshire a safe place to live, work and visit.'
