Dear Ms Graham,
I am an interested applicant who would like to apply for your recently advertised Correctional Officer vacancy which was advertised yesterday on the Dayjob.com website.
The nature of my career to date and my work experience in the fields of corrections, security, law enforcement and the military police have fully prepared me for your position.
I am more than able to maintain centralized jail security and ensure inmate welfare in accordance with all local and national laws and regulations. I will also remain alert, observant, and physically able to respond appropriately to any work situations or emergencies should they arise.
With my present employer I am primarily responsible for maintaining security and observing inmate behaviour. I do this by inspecting locks, window bars, grills, doors, and gates to prevent escape. I am also in charge of investigating criminal and non-criminal incidents within the grounds of the correctional facility.
I am of good moral character, have a five year checkable work history. I would also like to point out that I am willing to work overtime at short notice and be on call as needed.
Right now I would like to join an institution like yours where there are ample promotional opportunities waiting for the ambitious and able. I invite you to review my attached resume which will show you that I am a capable and professional individual who is able to perform to the highest standards in all of those areas you require.
Thank you very much for your time, consideration and hopefully forthcoming positive response.
