  • Will my past come back to haunt me?

    I have a civil/municipal DUI in Warr Acres from 1999 and a misdemeanor DUI from OK County from 2001. I have been squeaky clean since and have recently enlisted in the Air National Guard and have been assigned to the 137th Security Forces Squadron(Air Force Police)So not only will I get a little bit of LE training from tech school but I will also reciev 30-35 credit hours for it too. Thought that may help me a little in my quest to become a LEO. I have just found out that my 2 DUI's are an automatic DQ as far as OKC PD is concerned. (SUCKS!!!!! They were my top choice) But there are several more PD's I would like to try and get on with. (Mustang,Yukon,Norman,Moore,Shawnee,The Village,Chickasha) Does any one here know if that will be an auto DQ for any of these depts?

        If i am not mistaken, I think the two convictions will end your career in this field, this is from the OHP disqualifiers:

        Disqualifications

        1. Convicted 2 or more times for DUI, DWI, or DUID.
        2. Convicted of one DUI, DWI, or DUID within the past ten years.
        3. Charged with a DUI, DWI, or DUID within the past five years.

        Several factors to concider are their policies and their insurance coverages.

              and they kicked him....i doubt it..

                I think Norman would be a no go if I am reading the DQ correctly. Two or more DUIs looks like a DQ under the section titled "Under Chief'e Directive".

                Can you pursue LE further in the Air Guard?
                I don't think it's nice you laughing. You see my mule don't like people laughing. He gets the crazy idea you're laughing at him.

                  Yeah Norman sounds out to me. The only thing I can hope to do in the guard is have a full time opening slot become available on Will Rogers Air Guard Base for Security Forces. But those tend to be VERY FEW and FAR BETWEEN. Not to mention I'm low man on the pole and not the only one who'd be interested in such a position.

                    In a situation like that I would almost suggest you find a smaller department to start at. Get certified and get some experience. 7+ years is quite some time, however, most department won't hire someone with 2 DUI's in two years. All you can do is keep your nose clean and keep on the straight and narrow.

                          That was 7 years ago. I know the difference between responsibly having a few during the OU TEXAS game or "keep on chooglin until I cant stand" I dont do that anymore. But thanks for the input.

                            If it were me I'd quit drinkin, period. Not even a few during the OUTexas game. Too many chances to mess things up. Get pulled over, get into a car wreck and just that odor of alcohol on your breath can cause you a whole heap of problems, even if your not legally intoxicated.

                              I think this young man has well stated this as a mistake of youth. Granted these are mistakes that do come back to bite one on the butt if interested in LE, but question asked and answered.

                              I agree that if you have keep your nose clean since, check with the smaller departments. It might not pan out, but it is worth it to at least check.

                              Truth is, most everyone has done things that were really stupid in their youth. Most just do not get caught and only have to mention the mistake when subject to a pre employment poly.
