    Indeed. If I don't get in I'm going to just keep trying. Someone will say yes lol, and I'll do good wherever I'm given the chance.

    4 speeding in my history and yes all were 20+ MPH over except one and one was reduced as well.

    I'm back to 0 points on my balance though.

    I also have a previous undetected theft from 4 years ago.

    Advice given by Alexandria Police was to try again in another year so I will just wait 2-3 before trying again and add more to my resume (volunteer, a BS degree, stable work history, no speeding tickets etc) and hope for the best. I've got a lot to offer and the passion is there so all I need is the chance to show it.

    A little late on this one PaliBoy, but I feel your pain. I was doing my background packet for an agency here in MD & counted all the applications to PDs & FDs since I started applying 3 years ago. I've submitted 51 separate applications in that time. Between rejections for my driving record, agencies taking laterals, cancelled academies, etc. I've been pretty much snakebit. My driving record is not the greatest, but I've spent a good amount of time driving like a grandmother & HATING it. We'll see, I'm in the process with VSP & my hometown agency in MD. I would tell you that if you don't mind leaving the commonwealth, I've heard that the Baltimore Police Department is hiring a class every 6-8 weeks. My driving record in MD has gotten me DQ'd a bunch, but in VA I didn't hear one word about it. Keep your head up, keep your eye on your goal & you'll get where you wanna go.
    I'm hoping you and the rest of the advice-givers here are right. I'd prefer to stay here in VA but definitely didn't eliminate the options outside. I figured I'd try in-state first. But, looks like I will just give myself more gap in between my tickets. It may help me in the future. Good luck to you man! I felt the pain with 8 rejections, I can't imagine going through 51. Determination though, pal. We'll get there!

    I've definitely looked into it but most of the departments have relatively the same admission standards as police so I figured I should just let me record clear up before attempting anymore.

    PaliBoy20. Keep at it. Apply everywhere YOU are willing to work. Don't give up. Have you thought about applying in at a correctional facility or does that type of job interest you? I have to admit reading your posts you have that "don't give up attitude" and that will get you far in life. Good luck.
