      It will definitely hurt you. And the more recent it is, the worse it will impact you. If it was a few years ago at least, it may not automatically DQ you, but it will definitely be factored in.

          I am not an expert, but it sounds like it may be a problem. Competition is very VERY fierce down here.
          In law enforcement, the customer is ALWAYS wrong.

          In God we trust. Everyone else is run through NCIC.

          Sometimes there is justice. Sometimes there is just us.

          I'd rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

            Here that would count you out. Most Florida agencies will pass you over to take somebody without the BK on their record UNLESS you did it as a college student who are STUPID about how important credit is.

            You would not beleive how many veteran cops have filed but that isn't your concren.

              I filed a chapter 7 back in '02, and I got hired with no problem... Its all about how you present it, and yourself. And show what youve done since to show that youve learned from it, to make sure that you wont let your credit slip again...

              For example, since my discharge in '02, Ive since been current on my 2 credit cards, and was able to take out a car loan last August. ( havent been late on a single bill )

              They saw that as a positive, and looked past the mistakes made by a young kid...

              Good luck

                Same situation

                Hey. I am in the same situation. I filed chapter 13 a bit less thatn 2 years ago. Ive ade it all the way to my psych, even though I dont think that I passed it... But hey I made it that far to where the chief said if I passed the med and psych I had a job. So yes I def. agree that it's how u position urself on the matter. and how good u talk. U may be able to convince them that just because u got in a bad situation, it doesnt mean that you would not make a good cop. just keep trying and trying. U'll get in somewhere.
