Sample Cover Letter for Law Enforcement Jobs
I am writing to apply for the position of investigator as advertised on your website. As shown by
my resume, I have several years of experience in law enforcement and security management. As a
former private investigator and as a security expert in the military, I have had the chance to
conduct several successful investigations displaying attention to details, sound judgment, and
analytical skills. I have also gained practice in documenting cases, interviewing suspects, and
using tact in dealing with victims and offenders.
Although my expertise has been gained mostly in the field with investigations into property
crimes, domestic violence, search and rescue, and fraud, I have also gained extensive experience
in personnel management and budgeting. I have also often been charged with writing standard
operating procedures and the training of new personnel.
During the course of my career, I have attended several trainings including counterterrorism,
domestic violence response, first-responder, and investigation training. I have also recently
completed a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, and I continue to seek opportunities to
further my training and education.
