Application for Correctional Officer

Dear Hiring Manager,

When reviewing your posting on for the Correctional Officer role at South Middlesex Correctional Center, I was excited to discover that your requirements closely match my experience and skills.

Currently, I am a Correctional Officer at Suffolk County House of Correction. Besides maintaining order in a detention facility and conducting safety, inventory, staff, and weapons audits daily, I also prepare confidential reports, monitor and supervise activities of more than 400 inmates, and ensure that all policies and procedures are followed.

In addition to my decade of experience, I completed the Correctional Officer Training Academy (COTA) where I was among the top 2% of students. My professional experience has helped me become an effective leader and communicator who functions well in fast-paced and deadline-driven environments.

As a native Spanish speaker who is fluent in English and has a basic knowledge of German, I thrive in institutions such as yours. I am also very adept at programs such as MS Office, Windows, iOS, and Slack.

Please find attached my resume for your review. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

Ramon Pareja
