  • Does security clearance help the background process

    Im currently a detention officer and have a national security clearance through homeland security. I've been thinking about applying to a department like LAPD or CHP. Will my security clearance speed up my background process?

    No, it wont.

    Each agency you apply with is responsible for conducting its own, independent background investigation as part of the hiring process.

      I had an active secret clearance with my last investigation being fairly recent. My background check still took forever to complete the only thing the clearance helped with was already having the bulk of the info my BI needed for the investigation compiled.

        It doesn't help in the slightest....even a TS/SAR type clearance wont make any difference in of itself

          It wont hurt you of course..... but it has no bearing. Ive seen more than a few people with Secret or even TS who have failed an LE background. Ive had both. And neither was as in depth or as personal as an LE background. Many people find that hard to believe.
