    If you have a clean background then this stuff obviously can't hurt and is all good. If you have background issues, stuff like this means jack squat.

          It's not all about "convictions". I have never been convicted of anything besides speeding either, however I have done worse. You need to disclose evrything not just what you got caught for.

              well that's good. If you have no criminal convictions, drug use, theft, dv and so on you should have as good a shot as anyone. Is there a fair amount of job openings in your area?

                Job openings for PD? or what jobs you referring to?

                  Reason why i can't give you answers is because i have never done any of that.......I'm new to all of this. The only thing that i have ever received big is driving under age, to me that's big but other than that nothing major at all. No manslaughter/reckless driving/ or any of that.

                        Well honestly, I think it is pretty obvious that I would be referring to PD/SO jobs.

                          I'm not sure.......Ive heard that the standards and requirements here are super high? might be just rumors but also heard that out of state recruiters come to the state of Minnesota cause of the standards and work ethics of people who work and live here.

                            Job prospects are very tight in MN right now. Finish your school and apply to any of SKILLS location and if you can pass the entrance you will be good to go. Not only are convictions important but so is positive work history. There are only so many jobs in MN and a lot of applicants. Keep your nose clean, get good grades and don't tick the boss off.

                              The above training, classes, and certification don't mean so much as does the fact that you were/are good at your job and that you succeeded at it with accomplishments. Most people in LE aren't going to know what the above things are. If you pass the interview and background check with whatever other tests your hiring agency may throw (such as medical, psychological, polygraph, physical agility, etc) at you then the above will be meaningful as in "hey, he might be a good employee because he did well as his previous job" even if it was something like making shift manager at the Taco Bell after just six months of employment as opposed to the other guy that met the requirements but gets fired, reprimanded, or does only the minimum at work. Good luck!
