RE: Police Officers, October 18, 2013
Dear Susan Mitchell,
I read with interest your posting for Police Officers. I believe I possess the necessary skills and experience you are seeking and would make a valuable addition to your company.
My background has prepared me well for the role of Police Officers. In particular, my experience as a police officer protecting embassies during times of conflict and public demonstrations has given me solid expertise so that I can perform all of the job requirements listed in the job posting. I have attended risk assessments for royal family duties, closely monitoring crowds for potential threats or persons of concern. In addition to my natural leadership abilities, I offer a unique talent for assessing urgent situations and resolving critical issues quickly and accurately.
I am certain that my resume will give you a greater understanding of my qualifications for this exciting opportunity. I will call your office on October 18, 2013 to discuss the arrangement of a formal meeting.
I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with and learn from you and your talented team. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Dear Ms Stevens,
Re: Police Officer position, West Goolagong Police Force
I would like to apply for the full-time Police Officer position with the West Goolagong Police Force as advertised in The West Goolagong Courier on 28 October 2008.
I graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Police Studies in 2005 with a major in Welfare and Justice studies with Distinction.
As a police officer with the East Witwick Police Force for the past two years, I have gained a thorough understanding of the role of policing in the community and the importance of upholding integrity and the law as a police officer. I have an excellent level of fitness, no prior convictions and am honest and hard working.
Previous to my studies in law enforcement, I worked extensively in Human Resources with a bank.
My excellent communications skills and thorough, detail-oriented style would be an asset to the force and I would like the opportunity to be interviewed for a position with the West Goolagong Police Force.
I have enclosed my resume and academic transcript. Thank you for considering my application.
