Dear Captain Stevens:
I was recently made aware by Greg Hines of the West Chester, PA Police Department, that you have an open position on your team; and to this end, I would like to submit my qualifications and interest.
My experience is primarily in street patrol, and have over 15 years on the force answering all variations of small to large offenses in the West Chester area-and recently, moved to Trenton. As my supervisor and our mutual contact can speak to, I have an extensive and clean record tracking down crime, and lowering its incident by regular route rounds, answering of citizen call ins, arresting and detaining of criminals, and community communication. I take pride in my professional position as Police Officer, and work very hard every day to make sure the best protection is afoorded the citizens I serve. I seek to bring my many years of experience, awards won, and stellar reputation to your force in Trenton.
In conclusion, I have many details to discuss with you regarding my years on the force, and what I can bring of value to the Trenton Police Department team. Please contact me at (999)999-9999 to schedule a time that is best to speak. Thanks so much for your time, and I look forward to the possibility of police work in Trenton.
