Probation Officer position

Career Letter

Dear …

RE: Probation Officer

I have worked in the correctional justice system for many years now and have made a decision to have my contributions create more of a substantial impact. I believe I can accomplish this by evolving into a more personal involvement role with offenders. It is for this reason that I am sending my attached resume to you in application for a position as Probation Officer.

I have been working within the correctional prison system throughout my entire employment history. I believe that this experience, coupled with my education has given me the skills to provide effective guidance to inmates transitioning back into society. I also believe that I can be an effective source in preventing first time offenders from reaching the prison system at all.

My experience has given me a greater understanding of the problems that inmates face during their transition period back into society. This core understanding gives me an advantage to building a rapport with these people, allowing for a greater success rate in preventing them from becoming repeat offenders.

I look forward to meeting with you to discuss potential employment opportunities. Please feel free to contact me at __(phone #)__ to schedule a meeting.
