We’re expanding our team of Armed Response Vehicle Officers as we
continue our journey to becoming an outstanding force.
We’re seeking already qualified armed police officers who are looking
for a new challenge, policing in a diverse and ever changing part of the
UK that serves a population of over 1 million.
Last year, our Firearms Support Group (FSG) undertook 700-armed
deployments across South Yorkshire, providing initial response and
pre-planned support to incidents and investigations across the county.
We are a specialised firearms unit and do not undertake a ‘dual-role’
function. Between armed deployments, our officers assist with Force
priorities, predominantly the targeting of armed criminality.
Subject to a fair and transparent process, there may also be future
opportunities to progress your career in various specialisms: including
MAStS, Close Protection, Tactical Rifle Officer, OFC, Tactical Advisors
& Firearms Instructor.
We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated and hard-working individuals
to join our team as we move towards the inception of a standalone MAStS
team from April 2021, where in return, we can offer you the opportunity
to use and develop the skills you have been trained in.
In addition, we offer a variety of support initiatives to improve
work/life balance. These include a positive health & wellbeing policy,
reward leave and dependants’ leave for those unexpected moments in life.
So, if you are
Passionate and dedicated to serving your community
