Dear Sir / Madam

I have noticed on your force web site that you are advertising for Probationary Police Officers and are asking suitable candidates to initially apply in writing.

I am very interested in this position and wish to apply for it. Please find attached with this letter my resume which provides you details of my career history and academic qualification.

I am currently employed as a security guard, where I have demonstrated and been commended for my perseverance, drive and loyalty. I feel that my greatest strengths are my ability to work closely with colleagues and communities, strictly follow procedures, successfully conduct patrols of buildings or sites and accurately complete administrative procedures.

I would be grateful for the opportunity of an interview where I can talk about my expectations and specific duties that I can perform for the betterment of the force. I am available for a interview on any date or time and I can be contacted my post, telephone or email.

Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully:


Mark Dixon
