Mr. Oliver Dittmer
Kent Court
3814 Hillcrest Drive
Kent, WA 98032

Dear Mr. Dittmer,

I was recently viewing your agency’s website and noticed that you have multiple openings for a Probation Officer. These documents are being submitted in order to be considered for this position and they include my resume and references. I will bring a full understanding of the probation department along with the experience that you require to fill this post.

My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Sociology as well as four years working in probations as both an intern and a paid employee. There were budget cuts at my past employer which meant that some of us were laid off. I know that I have the communication skills that would make me a valued member of your agency.

It is important that those who are being released from jail have a support system in place and I understand what being this support means. I am willing to work the hours that are needed in order to keep those in my care above the law.

I am looking forward to the time when we can get together in order to further discuss my background and how it can fill the needs that you have at your agency. I can be reached by calling (333)-511-7299 to schedule this meeting.

Sincerely,

Signature

Elizabeth Alvey
