  • md state police

    hello all.. i am new here.. i am really thinkin about applying for the md state police and i was just looking for advice... i am worried about getting disqualified... i know that under age drinkin is not tolerated and i used to enguage in underage drinkin but i no longer even drink, and i have tried marijuana on an occassion but i no long do that anymore, but when i did, like i said it was on occassion... i have never been convicted of anything ever, i have a good driving record, good credit and a good work history... does anyone think that i could get disqualified about what i did in the past?? i have read about a guy who was dq'd from b'more city police for a past drug addiction.. do they look at any former drug use as a drug addiction??? also what kinda questions should i look for on the polygraph exam?? and how long is the total process after orientation??

    Frankenstein,

    I don't think you can get Dq'd for trying pot or drinking underage. Just be honest and don't cover anything up. Remember, taking a hit from a joint once or twice and being addicted to drugs are two entirely different things.

    I am going to their orientation on July 7 in Pikesville, and am unsure on the length of the process. Good luck

      Dr....do not ask what questions will be on a Poly! Thats the first thing. Second, just go apply for MSP and see where you get in the process. You and like 10 other people come in this forum weekly and give the same sob story of drinking underage and smoking pot a "few times", etc...

      Talk to a recruiter, go to an orientation, apply, apply. Every department and state has their standards in which they must abide by. If you do not meet them, you find out quickly if you are to be DQ'ed!

      Best of luck to you. Also the process can be anywhere from 6-9 months.
