Accountability, honesty, professionalism, compassion, integrity, and respect are the practices of a police service. Acquiring a position in an agency will allow me to create an enhanced community relationship between police and citizens using these practices as the bases of my career. 



Dedication/Hard-Working/Work Ethic/Tenacity

This was not a skill I had to work on, but a skill that I was raised in. My dedication to work is seen starting in Grade 9 when I got my first job at Tim Horton's. Thinking that when I got hired I would stay for a year or two, I continued working there until I was finished high school. My work ethic would be testified by my employers at Tim Horton's, Guardian Pharmacy, and at Living Springs Bible Camp. I always showed my adaptability and flexibility towards these jobs and employers which gained me high respect and trust in these work places.


My best trait is my dependability. When asked to do something and I say yes, it will be done. My word is important because I want to be trusted and to be able to trust. By showing that I do what I say, those who need it know they can get it from me. This was quickly achieved at the pharmacy I worked at when my boss gave me my own set of keys within the first two months so that I had to ability to open and close the store, attend if there were any issues (brake in's), and stay in he had to leave quickly. This trust was build on my dedication to my job.


As a resourceful team player, my relationships are quickly build on trust and efficiency. My ability to work with others in a professional manner is key while attempting to achieve a common goal. This is best illustrated when I work at camp each summer. We have a staff of 30 people controlling up to 95 kids per week. It is hard, strenuous, and tiring. Together we plan activities and take turns watching cabins to allow other time to rest.


With my high degree of detail orientation, my goal for high results drive me to preform exemplary planning and organizing to achieve satisfying results. These have been demonstrated immensely in the past two years while being the only employee at the pharmacy and starting my first year of college.

Multicultural Sensitivity/Awareness

There is possibly no bigger issue in the workplace than diversity, and law enforcement must demonstrate a sensitivity and awareness to other people and cultures. With my experience in a Pharmacy and my Diversity Issues in Criminal Justice course, I have a personable and professional strength in cultural sensitivity and an ability to build rapport with a diverse workforce in multicultural settings.

Computer/Technical Literacy

Almost all jobs now require some basic understanding of computer hardware and software, especially word processing, spreadsheets, and email. As a computer-literate performer with extensive software proficiency covering a wide variety of applications, my skills in technology would outpreform the required needs.

Communication (Listening, verbal, written)

Exceptional listener and communicator who effectively conveys information verbally and in writing
