Subject- Application for the post of a Police Officer

Dear Mr. Hernandez,

I am writing this application on the recommendation of Sergeant Mac O'well; who I am currently working with. He told me about the vacant position in the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) in your department (Firearms Unite), and asked me to apply for it. Please accept this letter as my application for this position.

I have been working as a dedicated public servant for the Westhampton Beach Services for nearly a decade. I am a groomed fireman; holding the department license since ten years. I am always eager to learn more about the law and enforcement hence, I have given many police force related exams throughout my career. It has helped me in my line of work. I have attached all these certificates with this application.

I am sure that I will be able to extort from my academics and professional experience to become a prime officer in the Metropolitan Police Service.

It'd be really great if you'd provide me the opportunity to discuss things with you. Please call me on my phone number provided above.
