Re: Police Sergeant position at Park City (Job ID 210001)

Dear Mr. Holdman:

I read in the Washington Post’s classified section regarding your need of a Police Sergeant at Park City. This job seems to be the right challenge for me; I know that with my strong criminal justice experience and police background I will be an asset to Park City’s Police Department.

As n energetic law enforcement professional, I am expert in diffusing potentially volatile situations and managing staff members according to rules and regulations. My ability to exercise good judgment along with excellent analytical skills and critical thinking has been the reason for expedited promotion over the years. Moreover, I am a highly motivated and adaptable person and believe in working with a strong commitment to provide excellent security services within my jurisdiction. Even though I have a mild nature, I know just when it is essential to enforce my authority in order to either maintain discipline amongst staff members or to manage threatening situations effectively.

I will be moving to Cheyenne in two weeks and would like to set up an appointment in order to take this discussion further. I will call you during next week to find a convenient time for a meeting and will be available on my cellular phone at (239) 999-9999. Thank you for your time and consideration.
