    Theft Over $300 was a felony here 10 years ago. (now $500) Undetected/unprosecuted felony that you admit to will disqualify you.

    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.

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.
    Just shake him down when he leaves

    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.

    Be safe in Iraq.

    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...

    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

    Hmm it is JUST a felony.

    I would not say that the one instance alone DQ's you. I think the circumstance warrants seriouse exploration during the oral boards and interviews.

    This is a great example of where non-LEOs with a clue could have helped out a little earlier. Everyone is gun shy since some here get really upset if a non-LEO answers one of these brain busters, even if it has been discussed 1.000 times.

    Good times.

    Highly likely you would not get hired. This is a question that is asked orally and on written form and in polygraph and voice stress. Think we won't catch it ?

    It also depends on the Department. I've been a cop for over twenty years, and have done my share of BI's. In some departments it might be overlooked, in others it might DQ you. My current Department you would be DQ. In the local county SO you would not.

    Sorry.
