    Tell me about your greatest accomplishment in law enforcement

      Talking about your most significant accomplishment will give the interviewer a definite idea of where you place your values. It will also show the interviewer more about your personality, how you like to be motivated, and how to coach you in the future. It is okay to brag a little bit when answering this question. Show that you are proud of yourself and your career accomplishments within law enforcement.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I would have to say my greatest accomplishment was increasing drug seizures by 25% in the past three years in my post. I am proud of the fact that I have been able to lead by example, and train other junior officers to look more carefully for the signs of drug use and smuggling."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I have never been a law enforcement officer. However, I have worked with a few during the war. We made sure that vehicles and personnel leaving and returning to the country had nothing illegal on their person or stored in vehicles."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Although you don't have direct experience, you do a nice job highlighting the exposure that you do have. This is a smart approach.
