Dear Ms Stevens,

Re: Police Officer position, West Goolagong Police Force

I would like to apply for the full-time Police Officer position with the West Goolagong Police Force as advertised in The West Goolagong Courier on 28 October 2008.

I graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Police Studies in 2005 with a major in Welfare and Justice studies with Distinction.

As a police officer with the East Witwick Police Force for the past two years, I have gained a thorough understanding of the role of policing in the community and the importance of upholding integrity and the law as a police officer. I have an excellent level of fitness, no prior convictions and am honest and hard working.

Previous to my studies in law enforcement, I worked extensively in Human Resources with a bank.

My excellent communications skills and thorough, detail-oriented style would be an asset to the force and I would like the opportunity to be interviewed for a position with the West Goolagong Police Force.

I have enclosed my resume and academic transcript. Thank you for considering my application.

Yours sincerely
