  • Another how bad are my chances hurt

    Im starting to apply to different law enforcement agencies through the midatlantic region.I have the basic question of how bad my stupidity as a teenager is going to hurt me now. First I will be graduating in may from a 4 year institution with a degree in physics and a minor in CJ. Thats the good part, now the bad. The biggest set back i have with departments is that when I was 17 i got a reckless driving ticket. I was young, dumb, had a fast car, and a beautiful girl next to me that apparently had my hormones in a grip. That will be 4 years ago in may. I understand some departments have a set time that has to pass for these, most are 3 years, but how bad will it hurt for the ones who dont auto dq for the ticket. Second a year ago a got a HOV lane violation. It was the first time I had ever driven near DC and on 66 hov was 2 person and then i got onto 95 and it was 3 there. I realized as soon as I got on and took he next exit to get back onto the regular lane and what do you know.... a state police HOV checkpoint. When I was 17 i stole a pair of cufflinks from the mall (a little bit of peer presure i shouldnt of given into), but about an hour after i stole them I felt so guilty for taking them I went back and just set them back on the counter, wasnt caught for that. Freshman year of college i took a hit of weed, burned my throat hated it and never did it again. And the last thing, about a year ago i got a speeding ticket, but it was dismissed for successful completion of dip class. I understand it some of this does look bad and I want a honest opinion on how bad some of these things will hurt. I know the two biggest things are the reckless driving and the cufflinks.
    Thank you in advance for your input.

    Crystal Ball question that no one can answer.......... except for a recruiter or background investigator. Each department/agency will view your actions differently.

      It's not as bad as you may think. It sounds like you'll be three years weed free when you graduate, which is pretty much the norm for most agencies (some agencies are higher and some are lower), your reckless op ticket is five years old, and you returned the cuff links, which means you know right from wrong and ended up doing the right thing. If all we did was hire angels, there would be a whole lot less police officers on the road. Own your mistakes, learn from them and move on.

        I like the above! Word to the wise, make better use of punctuation and capitalization when making inquires. Yes it is the Internet, but your post and question are all anybody here will know of you.

        Agree, only the Agency you apply with can answer your concerns
