Re: Police Officer, advertised on Monster

Dear Mr. Richards:

I was interested to read City of Sometown’s posting on Monster for an entry-level police officer. For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to pursue a career in law enforcement, and the opportunity to serve and protect within my hometown community is my dream job.

Here’s why I am a strong candidate for this position:

Training & Credentials: After graduating top of my class from XYZ Law Enforcement Academy to earn my Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) certification, I pursued an AAS in law enforcement from XYZ Community College. Last month I earned my degree with honors, along with CPR and first aid certifications. As a result of this training, I offer a solid foundation in police fundamentals such as:

  • Police Patrol Procedures
  • Criminal Investigations
  • Crime Scene Preservation
  • Evidence Collection
  • Principles of Criminal Justice
  • Weapons and Firearms Handling
  • Interview and Interrogation Techniques
  • Street Survival Techniques
  • Emergency Response
  • Arrest Control Techniques
  • Legal Search and Seizure
  • Law Enforcement Driving

Physically Fit: An avid fitness enthusiast, I participate in marathons and incorporate weight training and kickboxing into my routine. These activities have prepared me for the physical rigors of police patrolling, safely restraining/subduing combative individuals and performing emergency rescue and response work.

Community-Minded: As a native of Sometown, I am deeply committed to the welfare of the community. After graduating from Sometown High School, I stayed active in my local church and Kiwanis Club. These close community ties will assist in fostering positive relationships and furthering police-community goodwill.

To schedule a meeting, please feel free to call (555) 555-5555 or email ba@somedomain.com. Thank you.
