How would a dept find all the places they've applied? Obviously they will call cities you've lived/worked in and some neighboring communities, but they can't call the 100s of depts in your state. One can apply to depts hundreds of miles from home or even out of state and unless one volunteers this on the application, how would a dept find out otherwise? Just asking because a previous LEO poster made it sound like it was a done deal, just like the criminal search in the federal databases.
    Agencies do credit checks. a cred history will show the checks.....the checks will be checked against your PHQ. Now, ask me how i know this...

He told us that he left the department because he didn't get along with one of his supervisors.......that just wasn't true.

    Now to address your current post.

    Of course you (or some mythical applicant) can lie. You can probably get away with it. BUT I will bet that every application you have ever seen has a statement saying that what you submit is a true statement.......and yo sign to that affect. THEN if you get caught in a lie----it is called perjury. You are correct that an agency isn't going to contact every agency in the area---or even the state, but you would really be surprised just how small the community is..................




    That "previous LEO poster" has been involved in his agencies hiring process for quite a few years as have I.

    Doing a BI is interesting-------you meet a lot of people who know the subject of the investigation. One tactic that isn't "super secret squirrel" is that every person you give as a contact is asked for 5 or so other people who know you---------and those 5 are asked the same. You would be surprised what that person twice removed from your reference list will tell us............................
    1. Thanks for imputting your experiences.
    2. I've heard about asking for contacts from the references you provide, and sure it is a quite common practice.
    3. I had just read too much into the posts, thinking that he was implying some state/centralized database of applications like the federal database of criminal records.

    Thanks

    And when that department finds out, years later, that you lied on your application.......want to hazard a guess as to what happens to you then?

    Google the term 'brady law enforcement officer'......because that is what you will be after an agency, ANY agency finds out that you lied on an official document.

    Also remember that the Law Enforcement community is pretty small. People know people all over the country. We are the biggest street gang in the world.

    When you apply at Department X...............they will ask if you have ever applied to any other departments. They will then ask for the names of those departments.. Departments talk to each other


    If you don't tell them about another department -----and they find out. Once again we have an integrity issue.

    There is no such thing as an expunged record when you are dealing with a Law Enforcement Background Investigation.

    Hidden, expunged, deferred (or any other term you wish to use) records are easily accessed by LEO's. They are especially accessed when completing a Background Investigation.

    If you have a issue, and don't disclose that issue----the department you are applying to will infer an integrity problem in your failure to disclose. This is normally fatal to a Law Enforcement application. Once you have an integrity issue on record, it is very hard to overcome. No agency will trust you ......no prosecutor will trust you.....no judge will trust you.


    THAT is how it is possible
