Dear Chief. Smith,

I have been a sergeant at this station for quite some time now. I started here back in 1994 and you conducted my interview. After 14 years here, I'm absolutely proud and happy to be serving with what I think is the best police force in the country.

After these five years as a sergeant, I believe it is time for me to move up. I would like to continue to serve the city as a detective, and the new rank would give me resources and access to better do so. With the new rank of detective, I would have more men working with me and together we could take on the Miami gang, a personal goal of mine.

The following is a list of some of my accomplishments over these 15 years:

  • The arrest of Marcum dePaul, as part of a large drug ring which later led to the arrest of 28 other drug traffickers.
  • The investigation into the disappearance of Meagan Shiled and her safe return home with the arrest of the babysitter.
  • The community programs which I have planned and implemented with the Community Development Board.
  • The arrest and successful conviction of 31 rape suspects over a 2 year period.
  • The arrest and conviction of John Simms who murdered his parents.

I believe that I am ready for the promotion and I would continue to serve the city as a lieutenant. My record shows my drive, perseverance, and loyalty to this station.

Captain, I thank you for taking time out of your day to read this letter. Please contact me on my cell if you wish to talk more about this. The number is 000-000-0000.
