Cover Letter – Retired Police Officer Transitioning To Security Management

Mr. John Smith
Department Manager
ABC Company
1234 E. Main Street
Any Town, US 55555

Dear Mr. Smith:

I am very interested in joining an organization such as (name the organization). During my online research, I was very excited to learn about the current opening for a (specify position), and feel my qualifications and your requirements are a good match. For your review, I have attached my resume for your consideration.

My career reflects 27-years of dedication and achievement with the Metro Area Police Department at ABC Airport, with a promotion to detective in 1998. In this capacity, held in concurrence with other positions that most notably includes my role as a federal officer, my work is centered on ensuring the safety and security of passengers, employees, and property worth tens of millions of dollars in commercial value each year.

Throughout my tenure, I have developed and resolved numerous cases ranging from minor to federal offenses across several state lines that otherwise might not have been investigated. However, I cannot take full credit. Without the fine police work carried out by officers under my direct supervision, and cooperation of community members, many cases would have gone unresolved.

Combined with my experience supervising the strategic installation of surveillance systems, I am confident I would be an asset to your organization’s security management team in a supervisory role.

If you feel there is a mutual interest, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your company, the requirements of the position, and how my qualifications would be a good fit.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration of my candidacy. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
