First of all, if you intend to become an officer of the law and dedicate your life to upholding and protecting the law, then I have the deepest respect for you, and hope this article helps you in achieving your goal.
There are several steps in law enforcement officer selection; there are written, physical and verbal exams along with interviews. You can send the cover letter at any point of the process. In the letter, thank them for considering you this far. It is best if you have already had a POST course. Tell them why you want to be a police officer and what can you offer to the police force.
The letter does not confirm that you’re getting hired, but it does help you stand out of the crowd. I am glad that people like you stand up to become our protectors and reformers. Here is a sample letter to assist you:

Sergeant Lou Ward
The nth Precinct
4940 Angie Drive
Orange, CA 92668
Dear Sergeant Ward:
I am writing this letter with reference to the new batch of police officers, which are soon due to be sworn in. I am one of the candidates that have already passed the aptitude and physical tests. Thank you for considering me thus far and I hope for you to see me in uniform.
I have wanted to become a police officer like my uncle since the day I could walk. That is why I chose Justice and Law as subjects in High School. I have also just completed my Bachelors in Criminal Psychology, which I believe has given me knowledge beneficial to both myself and any colleague working with me. I deeply respect what you selfless men and women do and want to be counted as one of the protectors of the law, myself. I honestly think that if I do an astounding job as a police officer, I will be able to give back to my community and help reduce the rate of crime.
Once again, thank you for letting me get this far. If it is possible to meet with you and discuss a few things, please have your secretary contact me at (000) 524-6021, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to the opportunity to uphold the law in the near future.
Candidate Geffory Simon
