Do you have what it takes to become a police officer?
Anyone interested can find out when West Yorkshire Police hit the road next month to publicise its latest recruitment campaign. Officers from across all five districts will be heading out this week on a roadshow with media display vehicles stopping at various locations on the way.

The next recruitment window for police officers opens on September 11 for two weeks until September 23.
