  • Yet another question. Past Tickets?

    I have gotten pulled over for speeding 2 times in the past......5 years. Ive gotten 2 tickets. The first one was about 3 years ago and was talked down because of my clean record to a parking ticket which I gladly paid. Then last year I got one for speeding again and for some reason I was pulled over for running a stop sign which I was never near, but thats besides the point, the point is I got the ticket. When I showed up for court for those 2 tickets *being taken care of in the same day* the judge through them out and I got off with just a slap on the wrist. That being said, I want to become a trooper, which yes yes I know STOP SPEEDING AND NO TICKETS!!! Beleive me now that I have started pursuing this career I obey the speed limits and all other laws. But my question is that since those were talked down/thrown out, will they show up as a parking ticket and not being there on my background check or what? Should I let someone know that so its not like Im lieing? I think that if I bring it up during my interviews that itll be a problem.

    When you complete your Personal History Statement or similar document, you'll need to list any and all citations you have recieved. This includes the original charge, dates/times/dispositions. Don't fail to do this. The mere fact that you have recieved a citation(s) may not DQ you. Failure to list them will.

      Many, many cops working today have been cited for traffic violations prior to becoming LEO's. It's not a deal breaker in your case. Just don't lie, like others have pointed out.

        In my department (state level) lying gets more canned from the hiring process than anything else. Tell the truth, nobodies perfect.

          Just be honest. If they are on the record then there's no issue of your integrity. If they are not on the record then you show that you are being painfully truthful.
