  • Hiring question for................a friend

    Hello Brothers! First of all I want to tell you how much I admire your profession, I have a few questions that I need answered, but ONLY respectfully and sincerely.

    First a little background

    I quit smoking weed last week (yay) Have only been arrested 5 times but NEVER convicted so I guess I don't have to disclose them. Probably the worst one was a month ago when I had a little too much to drink and did a traffic stop (I have purchased and refitted an 8 year old CV with push bumpers and red spotlights, it is still painted black and white!) Anyway I came upon an old lady who didn't signal when she pulled into the Catholic Church for Bingo night. I tried to give her a warning but she rolled up her window and called the Police. They wound up hassling me for having a Sam Brown complete with a paint ball gun in holster, 6 pairs of handcuffs and a badge I bought on the internet.

    My question is I have filled out paperwork at all the local PD's and they want to know if I have "applied" anywhere else. Since I didn't take a poly or get to the BI phase I feel comfortable answering no. I know I will do well on my interview since I have watched ALL the Cops episodes and Law and Order reruns.

    Now keeping my situation in mind what can I do to improve my chances of getting hired? I think I already have all the equipment I need and will not make any more traffic stops after I've been drinking.

    ONLY respectful answers allowed as I feel entitled to same from all my brother LEO's

    Your "friend" will never stand a snowballs chance in the Mohave Desert at High Noon on the 4th of July.


    My suggestion is that you ------------I mean your "friend" should throw himself under the Union Pacific train that runs through your state and save us all a whole lot of trouble.............................


    Then again you could always FOCUS .
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

        ^^^ No sheeoott. I think last week every academy in the US graduated a class. Hi I'm so and so.
        This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

                It's not "lying" until you take a poly and fail. Anything you do before a poly is not a lie because they probably won't be able to prove it anyway.

                To improve your chances you should attempt to hold your breath under water for 10 minutes.

                Good LUCK!! : )

                    I'm a firm believer that those who REALLY believe they've changed are entitled to a second chance. After all, it's been 'days' since your last transgression. Why should any PD try to judge people simply based on their past? It's what's in your heart NOW that matters.

                    I mean really. You've watch "ALL" episodes of COPS. What else is needed????????

                      Well I think that you need more practice at traffic stops to have a good chance of getting hired. The cops you talked to were just hassling you because they were jealous of your black and white Crown Vic and your numerous pairs of handcuffs. Also, were they wearing their hats when they talked to you? I bet they weren't and therefore anything they told you was invalid.
