  • Question-reapplying

    Three years ago I applied with a local department and was turned down. Going on memory here, I think it was because of one question that failed me on the polygraph. I had gotten as far as to receive the conditional offer of empolyment.

    Anyway, is it a bad idea to reapply to a department three years later? Should I try elsewhere? Just looking for advice, no smart comments needed, please. Thanks.

    If its a no go, should I try other departments?

    I say reapply. I attempted with my current agency three times before I was hired (four total applications). I also tried twice with another agency and wasn't hired there at all. It's about persistence. If it's a goal that you want, you'll do what's necessary. Good luck.

      Thanks for the quick reply. Just out of curiosity...how does having military police in ones background effect their chances? Is it a plus?

        won't hurt, but I wouldn't say it's a plus either...

          Re-apply.MP service isn't really a leg up. You'll need to test well.

            Reapply. Unless they told you not to apply again, you still have a shot in the process.

              The first time I applied at my dream agency, two years ago, I was outclassed by people with more impressive resumes. Now after working my *** of for the last 2 years, few have a resume that can touch mine. I am just waiting for them to end their hiring freeze. What I am saying is that a lot can change in a few years, and you should reapply.
