  • Background Packet Questions

    I'm in the second phase of the hiring for a non-sworn state position and have just finished the background package. I have a question regarding the questions concerning the negative information. The "disclaimer" on the instructions under "Disqualification" stating "...or even arrest or conviction are usually not...automatically disqualifying" notwithstanding, aren't there many of those activities that would be immediate showstoppers, i.e., arson, cultivating marijuana, etc. ?

    If that's the case, why would someone answer that they had committed those, knowing that they would be brought in to question in the BI interview?

    I suppose for the same reason that that one aspiring trooper openly admitted in his Poly that he had molested an 11 year old on more than one occasion. You guys know what I'm talking about, right?
    It's like I was telling my wife last night when she said she couldn't understand why people do certain things....you CAN NOT expect irrational people to make rational decisions.
    The place where you made your stand never mattered. Only that you were there... and still on your feet.

        Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to be that someone would mention it in the interest of honesty. After all, they'll find out anyhow, right? If you've got convictions, lied on your poly, etc...
