    Ok here is the Scoop....

    I have a friend who was former chief of Police and he mentioned to me that I should look into being a police officer. I did my research and as I ventured on, I became extremely conncected. I want to do something with my life that is honorable and I believe that there is no better way then to serve and protect. I went to our local police recruiter here in San Antonio and I ended up getting scheduled to take the test. I am very excited until it came to this point.... I was browsing through the DQ list and I stumbled upon the part where it says "if you ever were convicted with a Domestic Violence" Charge you automatically DQ. At the time, I shrugged it off because about 9-10 years ago in Alaska, when I was 18 I was involved in a little altercation with my Ex. it came to the point where I had to hold her from doing any damage to me. What happen was a nieghbor saw me and called the cops. In Alaska, it is mandatory to go to the county jail for a day till you go to court. Well, when I was in court, the lawyer examined everything and since I had a clean record, he told me to plead no contest and do community service and anger management classes. And if I was to comply, It would be lifted off my record. So what did I do, I completed what I was told to do and I never looked back every since. Since then, my record has been very clean. Anyways, I had a friend pull up my record back in Alaska and he mentioned that I have a Misdemeanor conviction of DV Assault. When I heard that, all of myself assurance fell out the window. So I have been talking with my friends who by the way are so high profile individuals to include: Former Chief of Police, County judge from Corpus Christi, and a few retired SAPD officers. They told me that it may hurt my chances but to not give up.

    I would like to see if there are any police officers from San Antonio Texas that would be willing to help me out. I would like to know if having that Ding on my record will Prevent me from being a cop. I have been studying very hard for the written test and I know I am in top physical shape too.

    What should I do? any advice out there

    I really would appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Chris from San Antonio Texas

    That DV arrest is far from a ding.....that is total loss.

    "The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) sent a notice to every law enforcement agency when this law went into effect. Police officers with prior misdemeanor convictions of domestic violence from years earlier were no longer permitted to possess firearms under the new federal law. Several officers were fired for such past misdemeanor offenses. Several of the gun magazines printed a copy of this new ATF order at the time."

      Sorry bud, DV is not a ding. It's a DQ. No if's and's or but's. When we have a law that says you can't own or possess a firearm there is nothing we can do. I don't care how well connected you think you are, or how big or small of an agency, there is no "helping out" with breaking the law.

              That's not true. First of all we don't have counties and there is no mandatory time in any jail before court.

              Back to your question, you cannot be a police officer with a DV conviction, I'm sorry.

                Thank you all

                Again, I want to thank you all for your quick comments. I will be looking else where. I have a bachelors degree in Political Science and I will try to get in with the Department of Defense. Has anyone ever been employed with the department of defense?

                  Yes, and just about EVERY job requires at least a secret security clearance. One you're not likely to get with a DV conviction.

                    Yes, I have. If the position requires a gun, DV will also DQ you there. Otherwise, apply away. If you don't have military time you will have a rough go of getting in. Vets get the jobs first.

                      To add to the already negative chorus. Your DV conviction is, and will remain, a permanent bar to your appointment as a Police Officer. In your post, you mentioned "expungement". You need to know, that in a Law Enforcement Background Investigation, there is no such thing as an Expungement. At the basis of your problem is the fact, that Federal Law precludes any individual convicted of DV, from owning or possessing a firearm.My suggestion for you is to look into another field. One in which you could be of service to others, as seems to be your desire.

                        Is that True?

                        I just looked at some attorney postions with the DOD and it did not state that any secruity clearence is needed.

                        I do get that point of where you are coming from though.

                              To work as an Attorney for DOD you will need at least a Secret....more than likely a Top Secret....

                              With a DV Conviction....I seriously doubt you will get either one....
