Law Enforcement

Postby Aziel » Sun Dec 18, 2016 6:12 pm

I have three things on my adult record. Possession of drug paraphernalia. This charge was Nolle Prossed(dismissed and dropped by the courts and state). The second charge is carrying a concealed weapon which reduced to a civil infraction,a $250 fine. The third is littering. I was confined in the county jail for two days because of this. I posted bail of $100 and went to first appearance. The charge of littering was dismissed and my bond money was refunded. The file was was purged from my record by the state. Why am I having such a hard time finding work as an police officer? I have no felonies. I have been puting out application after application with no success.

The reason that you are having a difficult time getting hired as a police officer is because of your criminal record and more importantly the nature of the charges.  No department is going to hire someone who has a record like you and has spent time in jail.  

A police department has hundreds of candidates.  They can afford to take only the best applicants, those without a perfectly clean record, and a spotless background.  Think about this.  Lets say that you did get hired.  Any time that you testified in court your prior record would be brought up to impeach your testimony and no prosecutor would ever call you as a witness.  Police departments know this and that is why you are having a difficult time.
