    Seriously, though, they want you to spell out (no pun intended) your reasons for desiring the position, your qualifications for the position, and and why you think they should choose you over the other candidates. Think of it as the cover page for your resume for a new position. In fact, my department likes to see a resume included with the letter of application. Make sure you include any education (Bachelor's or Master's degree), any specialized training you've obtained (especially at your request), and supervisory/leadership experience.

    Take what I say with a bit of a grain of salt, I've only got 3.5 years on the job (my comments are based on having been through a promotions process and a bachelor's degree in administration of criminal justice).
