It is with great interest that I am forwarding my resume for consideration as Major within your agency. As a highly motivated Director of Informational Systems within your law enforcement agency, and having served in many capacities within this agency, I am confident that I possess the skills, the knowledge, and-most important-the dedication and commitment to ensure that citizens are provided with safe, efficient, quality protection.
My desire to make a difference in the community and in the lives of the people in that community led me to a career in law enforcement. The teamwork, dedication, and commitment involved in serving the community make this work extremely rewarding, as does the continual effort to be the "Best of the Best." Law enforcement is a physically demanding and dangerous occupation, requiring physical fitness, discipline, and teamwork. My team-building, leadership, and motivational skills will be an asset to your agency, as will my stamina and capacity to act decisively in emergency situations.
With more than 25 years of law enforcement experience, I will bring to this position extensive expertise and departmental knowledge. With a vision of a progressive Sheriff's Office with a continuing tradition of exemplary service, I believe my values of honesty, embraced diversity, respect, commitment, and full accountability, combined with knowledge gained from extensive experience, will guarantee my ability to do this important work.
Throughout my career, I have demonstrated my ability to handle full responsibility and leadership. My responsibilities have been diverse, and have included departmental management, strategic planning, project management, and financial analysis. Having successfully executed tactics to cut costs and improve efficiency, I possess the ability to conceive and implement business solutions to problems while working closely with personnel and projects, building a reputation for quality and overall results. My mission is for a Sheriff's Office by and for the people, committed to justice by serving and protecting our community.
Thank you for your time and consideration of my application. I look forward to discussing in detail with you the ways in which I can make a significant contribution to your agency, and I invite you to contact me, at your convenience, at either of the above numbers.
