Posses a Secret Clearance, Type 25 WPM, Physically Fit, Knowledge of Computer Software (Word, Filmmaker, Windows 98, Adobe, Excel).

I am a highly motivated, conscientious employee, who is a reliable self-initiator and can be depended on completing assignments/tasks with no supervision. As an organized professional with a positive attitude, I enjoy the challenges of learning new skills and providing the citizens or customers with the best quality of service possible.

I can deal courteously, yet firmly and effectively, with the public in police situations or any other type of situation.
