I want to write you a brief letter of appreciation for your professionalism with helping me to achieve an important personal goal in my career.

As commanding officer of the Anne Arundel County Police Department’s Special Operations Section, I have a deep sense of pride and respect for the men & women assigned to the Section and the various missions they perform. For sometime, I gave thought to an idea that I would like to capture this proud assignment in my career with a Section photograph.

It was at an Anne Arundel County Trade Council business mixer, hosted at our Training Academy, that I had an opportunity to view some of your professional photographs of other public service agencies. It was at this time and I began considering the real possibility of photographing our own Section.

I think we both would agree that perseverance is a must when attempting to schedule twenty-one individuals for any event. However, after six months of scheduling efforts we were able to accomplish this meaningful task. After seeing the quality of the proifs and the enlargements the officers ordered, it was evident that there was as much pride that day on your side of the lens as on ours.

Thank you for a job well done. It was a pleasure to have worked with both of you to make this personal goal a valued accomplishment.
