    I didnt really "fail" out, Kinda just quit because I was playing poker and not focusing enough on school at the time.

    No. Just because you are certified does not mean you can pass a background with a LE Agency.

Your chances of getting hired are slim though especially the way ther economy is now plus there are lots of applicants out there with good resumes. Your best bet would be to talk to some recruiters in your area. I mean i know theres depts in my area that would hire you but would you really want to work part-time making $9 an hour in some of the worst areas. I hope not. THose kinds of depts accept anyone which is scary. I wish you luck but it wont be easy.

    NO I would not hire you. There are to many red flags in your background. Four Underage drinking citations? Come on. You claim you wanted to be a cop your entire life? I find that hard to believe. 1 citation maybe 2 possibly but 4 thats rediculous. Shows immaturity to say the least. Your excuse of everyone does it is lame. Dropping out of college not a good thing either. There are plenty of better applicants out there. Sorry im not going to sugar coat it for you.
    Do you think the majority of LEO agencies will feel this way?

    Perhaps I got caught up in the wrong crowd then.

    That's what you call, good police work and doing thier job. If they are aware of teenagers having parties and drinking, then sure they will probably "bust" your party and cite you. Of course you could have gone out of your "small town" and done your drinking elsewhere, but why do that when you can get 4 citations in a two year period? Hope you haven't moved up the game and drink and drive?
    I don't know, if I could know what I was thikning 6-8 years ago I would gladly be able to tell you, all I know is ive been out of trouble since then, never drink, etc.
