    Sorry, that's a felony in most states. It doesn't matter that you didn't get caught. Felons can't be cops.

      Being a LEO requires integrity....
      If you don't tell potential dept's about it....no integrity
      The fact that you did it (even though you changed your mind afterwards, the intent was still there)....no integrity

        very good point,,however, if you have driven twice in ten years under the influence, and did not get caught,, its still a felony,,and many still get hired...i agree that it is bad,,,but you wont know untill you apply,,some may not mind,,and some will. i know one guy who got fired for sex harassment, then later got rehired, and then got picked up by a state patrol...so you just dont know untill you try,,,it will be difficult though.

          good point... i bet more then half have driven under the influence... it's a felony, and you didnt get caught... i guess it wouldnt hurt to try and apply anyway.

          thanks for the comments though...

            I'd be curious to know why these gujys who've "done plenty of drugs and stolen and other things in their past" are PRIOR cops. Did any of them get caught and fired/prosecuted?

            I don't think you'd be hired in my dpt. They new admin seems to be cleaning house and moving away from the "good 'ol boy" system we've had forever. I doubt if they found out about a felony in your past they'd hire you.


            I'll leave the comment about LA alone....maybe someone who works in LA will address it.

                You might as well apply, but I wouldn't count on being hired. At the age of 19 you should have known better than to take that much money. The things I expect to hear about on a BI or at an oral board are much less severe; more along the lines of shoplifting a candy bar or something like that. When you are talking about the amount of money you mentioned it puts things in a whole new DQ category.

                    Assuming you want an honest answer. Your theft didn't do you any good. My agency would regard it as a major "red flag". On the theory that the worst thing they can say is no, I'd go ahead and apply. You can be certain the question will come up. Don't be surprised though, if the incident is a DQ.

                      Theft Over $300 was a felony here 10 years ago. (now $500) Undetected/unprosecuted felony that you admit to will disqualify you.
                      In God we trust, all others are run MILES and NCIC.
