Persuasive essay

Everything I have done from eighth grade to now has been to secure a position at your extraordinary college campus. The reasons I deserve to attend your university is because of a personal death in the family and your campus is the best for criminal justice majors. Unfortunately, About a year ago my uncle died unexpectedly and the investigators took over a week to tell us if it was a homicide or a medical issue. By the time they told us what actually happened the press had a field day with it. They were calling it a suicide then another channel was making it sound like a brutal murder where he was left outside of his apartment. In reality he had hit his head on a piece of furniture getting out of the shower, to the point where he started bleeding and couldn’t get help. But, after this event I was never the same, I wanted more evidence that this is what actually happened. However, I had no right to ask for it. Now I want to be a homicide detective because I want to bring closure to a family as fast as I can, and as accurate as possible. Soon after, I began to search for well renowned colleges that are known for their criminal justice programs. Which is when I came across your outstanding program at your lovely campus. Since finding your college I have been wasting no time getting started on your requirements and suggested academic standings. I have received lots of hands on training to prepare for your college and believe I am a great addition in your program and at your campus. I have also shadowed multiple officers and know how to deal with multiple situations but not all. I have received many compliments from these officers for my problem solving abilities and being quick on my feet. All of my preparation has been to hopefully attend your university and graduate from a well renowned criminal justice program. This is an extraordinary chance to be a part of something larger than me and to better the life of multiple citizens. Once again, I appreciate you taking your time to consider me for your program and hope to see you at your campus.

To Whom It May Concern:

It is without a doubt that Olivia Eagleson would be the right person to choose for a position in your team as a Homicide Detective. I have had the pleasure to know Olivia for a long period of time and i can assure you that her problem solving skills are one of the strongest that i have seen in my whole life time. I have been able to witness how see she takes a piece of evidence and comes up with many possibilities which lead her onto her next piece. Olivia is the type of person who will go the extra mile to have all the clues that she can possible have to solve any situation that comes upon her desk.
Ms. Eagleson is hard working candidate and if she does not understand a certain specialty i can assure you that she will do every possible thing in her will to master this criteria. As I have been observing Olivia i am able to tell you that she is fascinated by solving mysteries and is always ready for any challenge that anyone can bring upon her. I remember a time in middle school when it was family night and they had a murder mystery set up. Olivia quickly started looking for clues and eventually was able to find out who the murderer was. She was very patient with solving the crime but she too, was the first and only person to find out the truth in a matter of minutes.
Ms. Eagleson is also great when it comes to working in a team she gets along with everyone very well and accepts all criticism from others. I can see her ability for always wanting to learn more about her job. I strongly suggest that you keep Ms. Eagleson as a probability to an addition to your team as she would make the team better. If there are any further questions that can be discussed about Ms. Eagleson feel free to contact me at

Cover Letter

Good evening Miss Ortiz,

I am applying to shadow one of your officers through their day on duty in response to our meeting this previous week at the 79th precinct.
As I mentioned at our meeting I am pursuing a permanent position as a detective but, am willing to work from the bottom in order to get to the top. As of right now though I am pushing to obtain my Master’s in Criminal Justice. The courses I have taken have prepared me for the field and I am ready for hands on experience. Secondly, the experience I do have in the field will only benefit my awareness in the field, decreasing the chance of me being injured and or killed. During my other shadowing experience we ran into a drunk severely aggravated individual and were forced to use excessive force. With this experience I now know how to be affirmative without harming a single individual.
I have begun to notice that the newest cops have been the easiest to train due to the fact that the schooling has become more advanced over the years. This in no way is me saying I am ready to go into the field alone, I am only hoping you grant me permission to shadow one of your officers.
Thank you for your consideration sorry for any trouble recieving this may have caused you.
