South Yorkshire Police want more student officers to boost numbers on the frontline

South Yorkshire Police said: “If you think you are too old to do an apprenticeship think again.

“Our apprenticeship scheme is open to everyone aged 18 and above – there is no upper age limit.

“This is the route into policing if you currently don’t hold a degree and you can earn between £18,450 - £24, 177.”
