**** ***** **** **, *******, TX 77053 • 713-***-**** •

Currently at the threshold of my career with a distinguished degree in Administration of Justice, I have been researching companies of interest that I feel would be a good fit for my professional interests. After learning about Dallas County’s Community Supervision department, I am very interested in joining your organization as a Community Supervision officer.

I realize you will need to know a bit more about me in order to consider me as suitable candidate; for this reason, I have enclosed my résumé for your review as the first step in the application process. I trust you will find my early experience to be a strong indicator of what I would contribute as a skilled, hardworking member of your department.

In my previous position as an Intern Police Cadet/Telecommunications Specialist with Texas Southern University’s Police Department, a leading provider of public safety , I have greatly enjoyed the challenges my role has offered. In this unique position, I worked collaboratively with a talented team of officers in the development of important law enforcement tactics within the law enforcement industry.

As an intern, I have learned a lot about hard work and criminology principles at all levels of the criminal justice forum. My technical acumen and ability to diffuse the tensions of stressed end users has contributed to effective communication, problem analysis, and technical resolutions from common to complex in nature. Combined, I am confident I would be an asset to your department.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I hope to speak with you soon.
