Description:
South Yorkshire Police is the territorial police force responsible for policing South Yorkshire in England.

The police force covers an area of approximately 1,554 square kilometres (approx. 600 square miles) which is made up of the county's three boroughs (Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham), along with the City of Sheffield. The resident population is 1.2 million. The force is the thirteenth largest of the 44 forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Force headquarters is in Sheffield with the force being divided into four basic command units (BCUs): Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield.

The Chief Constable is Meredydd Hughes, who was appointed in September 2004.

South Yorkshire Police Authority has nine councillors (drawn from the metropolitan boroughs of Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield), three justices of the peace, and five independent members.

The force was formed in 1974, as a merger of the previous Sheffield and Rotherham Constabulary along with part of the West Yorkshire Constabulary area (to which Barnsley Borough Police and Doncaster Borough Police had been merged into on October 1, 1968).

The force's roads policing unit and its helicopter, Sierra Yankee 99, have been a feature in two television series, Traffic Cops and (more recently) Sky Cops.
