RE: Police Officers, October 18, 2013
Dear Susan Mitchell,
I read with interest your posting for Police Officers. I believe I possess the necessary skills and experience you are seeking and would make a valuable addition to your company.
My background has prepared me well for the role of Police Officers. In particular, my experience as a police officer protecting embassies during times of conflict and public demonstrations has given me solid expertise so that I can perform all of the job requirements listed in the job posting. I have attended risk assessments for royal family duties, closely monitoring crowds for potential threats or persons of concern. In addition to my natural leadership abilities, I offer a unique talent for assessing urgent situations and resolving critical issues quickly and accurately.
I am certain that my resume will give you a greater understanding of my qualifications for this exciting opportunity. I will call your office on October 18, 2013 to discuss the arrangement of a formal meeting.
I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with and learn from you and your talented team. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],
I am excited to submit my application for the full-time police officer position at the New Haven Police Department. I have two years of experience working as a police officer for the Charleston Police Department, and am a graduate of the West Virginia State Police Academy. I believe that I have the requisite skills and abilities to perform the duties you’ve stipulated exceptionally well.
During my two years as a police officer, I performed area patrols on foot, bicycle, and in patrol cars, responding to traffic incidents, domestic disputes, and reports of criminal activity. My performance was above standard, and I was frequently praised for my calm and authoritative demeanor even during moments of tension and hostility.
I am aware that the rate of crime in New Haven is higher than average, and I am keen to use my skills to assist and protect the community to the fullest extent possible. My training and personal characteristics make me a perfect fit to handle both tough situations and present a pleasant face to the New Haven community.
For all of the above reasons, I am confident that you will find me to be a compelling candidate. You can contact me at (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone at (###-###-####). I am available any time for an interview, as I am now a permanent resident of New Haven. I look forward to discussing this opportunity with you in detail.
