  • Prince WIlliam, Fairfax and Arlington Sheriff

    Prince William, Fairfax and Arlington are all hiring Sheriff officers. I just need some advice or help. I would work for any of the three, but in my younger years I did ecasty one time. I never tried Marijuana or any other drug. Would any of the three departments pick me up if everything else works out or would that eliminate me from the process all together?

    You would be DISQUALIFIED automatically there is not one departments in the U.S. that will allow that slide in the hiring process...Sorry!!!

      That's not entirely accurate. Please check with each agencies requirements:

        Not a LEO but this is typically the answer given to people with questions like yours. Even if it doesn't disqualify you, with the way the job market is there are many candidates applying for LEO positions that do not have any drug use. Everything else being equal a department is more likely to take a person with a completely clean drug history than you even though it was only 1 time.

          I would place a call into recruitment.

          There are no stupid questions, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots.

            Give them a call and talk to a recruiter. I would rather hire someone who did ecstacy once than someone who smoke marijuana regulary. Of course all that goes with the caveat of no usage in many years. I know a guy at one of those departments mentioned that tried LSD as a teenager. He was upfront and honest about it. He was automatically DQ'd from one dept, and accepted at another. It all depends.

                  I tested in January 2011 for a January 2012 academy (tentative)...I got rejected though...but yeah, I guess they aren't shooting for another class in 2011. (For police anyway)
