In June, South Yorkshire Police announced its biggest recruitment drive for more than a decade, with bosses keen to find the 500 new bobbies over the next few years as the service expands and to cover retirements.

The first in a series of information events for those interested in the roles is to be held on Tuesday, September 3.
