Dear Mr. Moore:

I read in the July 15th Fredrick Post classified section of your need of a Police Officer at the city of Fredrick. I am returning home after completing my police education from Washington Police Department and believe that I may have the necessary credentials for this post.

As indicated in the enclosed resume, I worked as a trainee police officer in Washington and have had the opportunity to attain some of the more potent experiences of a police officer’s life. Having had the fortune of administering CPR and first aid procedures to a little girl who was a victim of a road accident and thereby saving her life, I believe that no work is more rewarding than that of doing what is lawfully correct. My areas of expertise include assisting police officers in patrolling activities, security checks, investigating reported crimes, interviewing suspects and witnesses and making arrests when necessary.

I will be in Fredrick by December 20 and will call you to see if it is possible to meet you in person to discuss the possibility of my working in this capacity. If you need any additional information, you may contact me at (9010) 999-9999.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
