Dear Ms. Morgan,
I read your advertisement for the open Sergeant position at your company with great interest. As a law enforcement officer with ten years of experience including numerous trainings and certifications I am a perfect candidate for your consideration. Additionally I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology and was previously selected for and completed the FBI’s prestigious National Law Enforcement Academy.
Currently my position requires me to supervise other patrolmen on the night shift and assign duties to other officers. Working in oftentimes unpredictable situations has honed my skills to quickly adapt and take charge when events become volatile. My interpersonal skills are key as communication with both those I supervise and individual community members is vital to ensuring safety. My natural leadership ability combined with excellent communication skills would greatly benefit your company in the Sergeant role. As an example I have been successful at brokering a successful end to a stand-off situation with an armed man. These are the qualities I believe your company is looking for in a Sergeant.
I am confident you’ll agree that I am the best candidate. I am excited to meet with you to further discuss my qualifications. I look forward to your call.
There are plenty of opportunities to land a position, but it won’t just be handed to you. Crafting a cover letter that catches the attention of hiring managers is paramount to getting the job, and LiveCareer is here to help you stand out from the competition.
