Corpus Christi, TX 78410

Dear Mr. Burgos,

I am relocating to your area and am interested in the Police Sergeant opening that I saw in the employment section of your website. My resume and record are attached to this letter for your convenience and perusal. I am sure that you will see that I have the experience and the background to be an effective sergeant at your precinct.

My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. I have worked as a police officer for more than ten years with the past four of them as a sergeant. My communication skills, both written and verbal are superb and I can offer a calming voice when there is a difficult confrontation with a suspect.

I have great supervisory skills and understand the disciplinarian methods that are used when dealing with those officers on my team. I can also schedule officers as well as make sure there is plenty of coverage for those busy holiday hours.

It would be in both of our best interests to have a meeting to further discuss your opening and how I can successfully fill it. Please feel free to call me at any time at (123)-267-8268. I am available to meet at your earliest convenience.

Sincerely,

Your Signature

Patrick Atwood
