A police investigation cover letter is sent when applying for a police investigator's job. Like most cover letters this letter is accompanied with a resume. The letter proves very effective from the selector's point of view as it highlights all your skills and your communication skills. These cover letters needs to be drafted in a very impressive way.
The letter should talk about all the major achievements of the candidate applying for the job. It should highlight your skills in such a way that the employer should get impressed with your skills. The layout of the letter and its flow should be accurate. There should not be any doubts left in the employers mind about short listing you after reading the letter.
Candidates need to also bear in mind that it is not essential to mention all the achievement you had attained in the course of your career if you have a rich long experience in multiple fields. Only those accomplishments and skills which go well with the investigators prolife and the most astonishing achievements in the field matching to the job would prove fruitful. In most cases this rule does the trick and since your resume has all your achievements, qualifications and skills, it would prove pointless to repeat all of them in the cover letter.
Your cover letters should stand unique and in a way talk about your persona, your aspirations and where your wish to see yourself in the near future.
Given below is a sample police investigator cover letter which can be used by applicants applying for such a profile.
