        Same here, Just do an open record request on your file, and there you will find your answer. Just be aware, you might get very discourage. I did my open record request, something that should've taken 21 days to obtain from the DPD, took 5-6 months. After going through and finding the reason why i was DQ'D, I was very disappointed. There were citations that supposedly were mine, so when i called the department from whom i suppose received, nothing matched and even obtained a letter stating such. So brought this up to the attention of a superior at DPD with the letter in which they also acknowledge citations werent mine and again had to wait (i was left in the dark again, each time i would call to check status, i was told, i will be given an answer that same day or they couldn’t find my file and this went on for 5 months) and at the end just being told it was for another reason, in which again didnt mentioned in my file. I felt they just wanted me out of their hair, and just made up something to get rid of me. I think DPD is in a big mess, and they dont even know what they are doing over there. So honestly dont get discourage and keep applying to other departments. I recently received job offers with 2 different agencies, so just keep your head up, dont give up.

    • We did sign that. I remember that being odd but I signed it anyways. It can really be anything that DQ you..drug use...financials....credit....job history....prior arrests.....

      There isn't anything u can do u fortunately. Msg me if u wanna talk n ask me anything.

        Why you stated that prior arrests can DQ a candidate from the Dallas Police Department? An arrest isn't necessarily a disqualification. I was wrongfully accused of family violence, but the case was ultimately dismissed . I was told by a Dallas police recruiter that my arrest would not be a problem, since it was dismissed in the court of law.

        You're correct. Your arrest was dismissed. But if it hadn't then that might be a different story. I'm basing this off of my experience of going through the hiring process. We had many people escorted out of the first day of testing because ppl had an arrest record or misdemeanor charges etc.

          • Umm...I find it hard that a candidate is rejected and escorted out during the initial phase of the hiring process simply because of an arrest, not a conviction. I brought my arrest to the attention of the dallas police recruiter whose name I will not mention on here, and he told me that an arrest without conviction isn't an automatic disqualifier. I'll be flying to dallas for testing this week and it would be wrong if I'm rejected from the process simply because of my arrest.

              its not simply an arrest. it depends on what you were arrested for and how long ago. they let things go if its been, lets say, 10 years. youre right, its not an automatic disqualifier, which is why youre testing this week. but once you finish the physical and take the civil service exam, then they go through your documents and background with a fine tooth comb. i know this, ive been through it. i wish you luck and hope it doesnt disqualify you. im just stating facts and giving you a heads up that its a possibility. theres someone who just posted on here that he was DQ for an arrest, and he was in the background phase. the recruiters and background investigators dont make the final decision. they submit the candidates file and a board/panel decides whether nay or yay. but like i said. good luck.

          • Ok, now I got your point and that's perfectly understandable. I'll submit all the relevant documents and explanation concerning my arrest to the BI. I hope they realize that my wife is emotionally unbalanced and that my arrest was bogus. Should they determine to withdraw me from the process, I'll take it with stride, knowing that a stupid arrest based on lies has deterred me from reaching my goal. Thanks for you time, by the way.

              If I can suggest that perhaps you can get that expunged from your record. This way any future job prospects are good to go. I never want to discourage anyone from applying but I have seen people sent home and after flying, motel, and other expenses for a maybe. I know i did. Just an FYI, have been on 2 other departments prior to Dallas. One state department the other Sheriff. God luck!!

                You were right about everything....just got escorted out of Dallas Police Headquarter over a dismissed family violence charge. The funny part of if is that I discussed the matter with a DPD recruiter prior to making the long trip to Dallas. I was told that my dismissal case would not be a problem. Why would you let a man spend so much on a damn trip only to reject him over a matter that had been previously discussed? I am just speechless. I should've listened to your advice.

              That all depends on your demographic, and if your background investigator wants to do his job.
              I yell "PIKACHU" before I tase someone.

                Well...it didn't depend on any of the above, my friend. They kicked me out just before I took the physical exam this morning. My dismissal charge was not good enough for them--notwithstanding I was given the green light to come and test--by a DPD recruiter. Very unorganized. Only a man that has dealt with a crazy woman in the past will understand what it is to be wrongfully accused and charged of domestic violence!!!

            • I'm sorry you went through that. I've been talking with recruiters to help out of state folks and even in stake folks with the process because they say one thing but sgts and LTs say another when u get to the civil service exam. I had 3 weeks of issues just to get a drivers license. Hopefully u find a dept that understands ur situation. Good luck bro.

                Thanks. They told me to bring them the police report of that stupid incident, but I am done. Why would you want to see the police report after you embarrassed me in front of everybody as if I was a criminal? I didn't just take it upon myself to fly all away to Dallas to get tested. I went back and forth with a recruiter about that incident in my record. Had he told me that the dismissed charge disqualifies me from being a DPD officer, I would've saved myself some money and embarrassment today. I should've known...facts speak for themselves when it comes to DPD.

              One of the many things about policing today is that they want you to have a spotless record. Some departments dont mind small stuff I have yet to find one myself but I have heard from others. Having worked in Law enforcement for 3 years I was just trying to help you understand, I wasn't trying to be a dick or discouraging in any way. If I can suggest that perhaps you start out in a corrections capacity and work it from there. Even if you get your record exsponged it still may show up in the future to all police agencies. I seen them turn people away when I was going through the process, just like you, because recruiters cant tell if you will get on or not. If you ever need advice in this area I will always be glad to help. Good luck on your future endeavors.

                Corrections! No, I am good. I've worked a number of years as a correction officer. It's funny how they're judging and rejecting me for a dismissed family violence case, whereas police will arrest you just over a simple accusation made by a desperate woman. All it takes is a phone call and next thing you know you have a record--whether the case is dismissed or not. Wow, what a system!

            • Is there anyone here from the July testing that has been contacted for their background? I checked last week to see if all my documents were received and they said my file was with background but still no word. I thought they said you would know when your background started cause the BI would call you. Did I hear that right?

                Hi, if your bg is with the investigators you will here from them prior to calling all your jobs and references, at least that how it was for me. I went from testing to job in 3 - 4 months time. My BI called me to make sure I had all the docs he needed, when we spoke I had to send additional docs that they needed. i.e. School transcripts from transferring colleges and a few others. You will hear from them in the order in which your app was received. Hang tight you will be called, if your Law enforcement right now they may get to you faster.

                • Just an FYI to all that maybe applying to Dallas PD. This is no joke out here. You must work hard and test well. 36 weeks is 36 weeks of test after test. Miss to many and your going home. Failing to keep up with the physical aspects and you might quit or flunk out. 9 months is a long time and the process is forever going, you need to stay focused and know the material. I have seen college educated recruits fail out due to the testing. I have seen people quit because of the physical training that goes on here in this heat is real and tough. You will train in 100 degree temps and stay focused. If your planning on doing that you will be successful. Please!!! please!!! please!!! if you have ANY kind of misdemeanor or felony please dont waste a trip here or arrests, if you had been arrested they can also get you escorted out of the testing process. if you have an arrest and its been dismissed, make sure that you get court papers to prove it wrong or documents that would explain what happened. If you require any other info please feel free to ask. No such thing as a dumb question.
