A word of advice from Editor Anne McKinney: "If you want to enter or advance in the police and law enforcement or security field, you don't need just any resume book. You need an industry-specific resume book! You will love this book targeted specifically to employment in the police, law enforcement, and security field. Every resume and cover letter we put in a Real-Resumes Series book has been tested and proven in the real job market. Don't play games with your career. Your choice of a resume book is one of the most important career decisions you will ever make."

Praise for this book and other books in the Real-Resumes Series:
"Distinguished by its highly readable samples." - Library Journal
"These excellent new guides don't just provide the usual coverage on how to write a resume. They provide industry-specific examples, industry-specific tips and cautions, and industry-specific strategies based on real-world resumes. Since many technical types aren't writers, this comes as a special gift; select a winning format, plug in your background specs, and away you go. It's that easy--with Real-Resumes in hand."-- The Midwest Book Review
"This thoughtful resource should come as a welcome and valuable tool." -Small Press

"I needed a resume versatile enough so that I could explore opportunities in corporations as well as in city and state law enforcement. Real-Resumes showed me how." D. Jones
"As a personal protection specialist, my resume has to convey trust instantly. I gleaned many tips from the Real-Resumes samples which helped me develop a door-opening resume." J. Proctor
"I was transitioning from military experience into the civilian community, and I felt like I was trying to communicate in a foreign language when I tried to prepare my resume. The samples in this book showed me how to translate military experience into civilian language, and I had many job offers." S. Tate
