  • LAPD background Appeal

    Hey yall. First off, brand new user to this place but long term viewer, lets keep the good info rolling shall we???

    I have completed every test and stage (minus the oral psych pretty much) and revieced a letter from the department last friday stating that I had failed a couple of the background standards. 3 out of six to be precise. I have spoken to my background investigator, he was surprised at the result and urged me to appeal. I have spoken to my appeals case manger looking for more specifics, and she gave them to me. She said there were a total of 5 'major' concerns. 3 of them I feel confident in explaining and removing their potent sting. But one in perticular she said was the big one.
    Ultimately, just over 4 years ago at the age of 19 a neighbor of mine (while living in an apartment complex) knew I had some perscription Vicoden, knew I no longer was using it for my injury, and ask to buy my left over tablets (about 6 tabs for about $15), which I sold to him. Since then, i have done nothing of the sort, never had any personal drug usage, ect. No explaining this one away; i did it and it was a mistake on my part. But I didnt know if there is any chance of winning this appeal?
    If I am denied, my case manager said i would be classified as Disqualified for life, and bottom line would be forbade to ever reapply to the dept. Any suggestions, tips for the appeal, or first hand accounts of overcoming this seemingly impossible beast? I feel it is either appeal or bust, since my case manager said that the amount of time i have between me and this incident may not matter even further down the line anyway, meaning this one incident may still come to bite me 5 years downt he road if i was to withdraw and reapply. Thanks for your info in advance!

    If you don't feel comfortable in winning the appeal I would wait and reapply at a later date. Every department has a different dq criteria, you may be dq'd at one department but hired at another.

      At this particular time, with the economy such as it is, and with the number of qualified applicants out there, I do not think you will win an appeal for selling narcotics. I just don't see it happening. Sorry.

        QRF is right. You admitted to 11351 HS, felony territory.

        http://law.onecle.com/california/health/11351.html

        Except as otherwise provided in this division, every person
        who possesses for sale or purchases for purposes of sale (1) any
        controlled substance specified in subdivision (b), (c), or (e) of
        Section 11054, specified in paragraph (14), (15), or (20) of
        subdivision (d) of Section 11054, or specified in subdivision (b) or
        (c) of Section 11055, or specified in subdivision (h) of Section
        11056, or (2) any controlled substance classified in Schedule III,
        IV, or V which is a narcotic drug, shall be punished by imprisonment
        in the state prison for two, three, or four years.
        You'd be permanently disqualified with every police agency in my county. It's a big deal if you sold or provided to drugs to someone else other self.

          Hey, Code-7, i dont appreciate the fact that you accuse of such things. My neighbor was during college, and every person in that particular apartment complex was a college student attending 1 of the 3 local colleges. As it was, all of the students in the complex hung out all the time, and when I broke my ankle playing football for my college, everyone knew i was loaded on pain meds because I couldnt function right for several days. About a month after i was back praticing, he came into my room when a lot of the guys were over hanging in our apartment and asked me for it. Sorry, got a bit worked up.
          The 5th thing was actually what my case manager stated probably the 2nd biggest no-go. When i was a kid, and the age range i provided was from approx 13-15 years, I made several female friends over the internet and a couple of them sent me nude pictures of themselves. As i stated to my investigator, they were the same age as i was, not younger then I, and they voluntered the pictures. I know they were real people because i spoke to a couple over the phone. A disgusting and embarrasing detail of my life, i know. The Department said this incident showed that i was disrespectful to the privacy of indivials since i could have easily allowed those pictures to leak out.... kinda weak in my opinion. Even though it is tough love for this thread, i do appreciate the honesty guys.

            Still, you knew better. Don't say that you didn't know what you were doing at the time was illegal. The "I was in college" excuse only works for certain things, but definitely not sale of a controlled substance.

            I know sexting is a big thing among teenagers nowadays, along with Lord knows what things they do on the internet with webcams. Be as it may, you just admitted to another felony, this time federal jurisdiction takes over because you were on the internet. You were in possession/transmission of child porn according to federal statutes. Doesn't make sense but the law currently does not have a caveat for anything consensual, because people under 18 can't give consent.

            The crimes you admitted to are very serious offenses. I am sure you mean well by trying to become a police officer, but I don't think that's going to happen. If you really want this profession, you might want to try another country where what you did is not illegal.
