Subject: Application for the Position of Correctional Officer
I am writing this letter to apply for the position of a correctional officer at your jail. It was recently advertised in the newspapers that the Central Jail was looking for new correctional officers, and I believe I fit the requirements. I have worked as a correctional officer for various juvenile detention centres before, and I am well trained in the field.
I graduated in General Studies from Calcutta University and have knowledge about inmates and prisons due to my previous work, and this would be a great asset to the jail. I have attached my resume which includes the details of previous jobs here, as well as letters of recommendation from the wardens of these detention centres and a few of my professors.
The position of a correctional officer is of utmost importance since it falls on them to oversee the inmates and make sure that they are serving their term properly. I believe I can take up this responsibility well and fulfil its duties to the best of my abilities.
I am a hard working individual who learns fast, and I will be a great addition to your team. I believe I have all the necessary merits to excel as a correctional officer at your jail. Thus, I would be forever grateful to you if you hire me for this position. In addition, I have done several internships related to law and crime, the details of which are mentioned in my resume as well. I really hope you consider my application and hire me for the position.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
