As any of these things are illegal, and you know about it, you are associating with a criminal. I was typing slowly so that you can absorb it as you obviously are waiting for an answer you want to hear, such as:
    Following advise such as ^^^this^^^ will get you on the wrong side of your BI and polygraph examiner.

    Well that isn't the case but nevertheless thank you and everybody else for their contribution to the tread. Appreciate it.

      The idea of avoiding questionable associations goes beyond simply passing a background investigation, its expected of you throughout your entire career. A lot of cops, myself included, had to "say goodbye" to someone in their life because of that person's activities or associations. As an officer of the law, the public puts its trust in you to be both fair and ethical. It is your responsibility to maintain that trust and keep yourself out of situations that may compromise your integrity. Ask anyone in internal affairs and they will tell you that a lot of dirty officers/agents turned in part because of their associations.

        I wasn't referring to OPM; their agents read their questions from a script. So far this year, I've had four of them across the desk from me doing BI on former and present employees. Three of them weren't even looking at me when I answered their questions; my body could have been telling a different story than my mouth lol.

        It does and I am.

        I would have to agree.

        Five were local / county and one (and oddly, one of the most thorough) was Union Pacific. I wasn't counting my security clearance (TS: SCI) and they (DoD) didn't even polygraph me for that. What they did do at that time was to compare the National Security Questionnaire that I completed for the clearance to the one that I filled out prior to entering the military. They checked for consistency and they (at the time the Defense Investigative Service) sent agents to everywhere I had worked, lived and gone to school.

        I would also agree wholeheartedly with this.

        From where I stand, they won't go very far down the 'rabbit hole' IF everything else is lining up. I wouldn't waste much time on trying to find dirt on someone who isn't shady and doesn't associate with dopers & criminals.
