    You'll be fine. Just put it down on the application and if you don't, be SURE to list it on the PHS and tell your BI.


    I would not list it on the application (you are not supposed to list things as a juvenile UNLESS it is a part I or part II type criminal act)

    I WOULD tell the BI and put this in the PHS.

    Yes, its a crime, but no, its not a big deal. Just tell the truth. Trust me, BI's have heard EVERYTHING...when you tell him about your MIP, he won't even flinch. He might just ask you a couple questions and it might get brought in the oral, thats it. Now, if you choose not to tell him...you can watch your LE career fade away into the wind when the BI finds out from someone else.

    I just graduated from College and I will be applying to several departments around the LA area. My question is when I was 16 years old I was caught drinking at a park with a few of my friends. The officers took us back to the station and wrote as a ticket. My parents and I attended court and I was given 300 hours of community service. I learned my lesson and it never happened again. My question is, many departments ask if you have ever been commited of a crime? will this be consider one and if not do I have to disclose this incident at any part of the process?
    Thank you

    And whenever someone answered they said one word YES If you get disqualified for lying to background investigator ONLY once, your chances to get into any other police department are slim to NONE.

    Thank you for your replies and I did read the first time about that it was a crime; however, that was not the question?

    Why would you send in an application before you found out the answer? Call the department NOW and tell them you screwed up your application before it gets to anyones desk. Note the names of who you talk to and keep records of everything. Look over my notes from the academy and see if you might have commited any other crimes that you don't know about. No, MIP is not the worst crime in the world but lying by ommision will get you black balled.

    Thank you for the information, but from now on when I fill an application whatshould I do? Meaning do I have to put yes I did commit a crime or disclose it in the background investigation. I want to be honest all the way I have nothing to hide, but I also dont want anyone to think i am a liar, putting different information in each application.
    I would appreciate your info.

    Okay...This is pointless... Obviously you won't read part where each one of us told you to say YES.

    Tell your BI you didn't think it WAS an arrest because of the "diversion" but in researching it further you found out it IS/WAS a crime & you wanted to clear that up with the Dept. Personally I don't see how a college graduate can think being taken to a station by the police,going to court,paying fines & doing community service isn't being convicted of anything..but that's just me. If I was your BI I wouldn't rule you out, but you & I would have a loooooong talk about this whole topic

    When it's time to fill out your background information tell the investigator that you were unsure whether it was a crime or not, but that you wanted to make sure that you were honest about everything so you are disclosing this.

    You DID commit a crime, albeit a minor one. The community service you got would be call "diversion" here in Va, meaning that instead of formally punishing you, the charge was "diverted" in the hopes that you would "learn your lesson". This is what is commonly done for juvs with no prior history.

    Okay you were caught drinking underage, officer took YOU back to station, wrote ticket, in my state thats COMMITTING a crime. So you need to disclose that. No matter how stupid mistake is, they HAVE to be ABLE to see THAT you are HONEST with them.
