  • Can I get hired? (Full traffic History included)

    I'm currently putting myself through the academy. "I'm the guide"

    Anyway
    I have 2 years of Military experience (Marine Corps) and currently in the Marine Corps Reserve

    I've applied to one agency so far, and I have been extremely honest about everything.

    ZERO drug use, but I did put on the application that I "underage drank" before.

    My only real issue would be my driving history

    I am 21 years old.

    Code:
    Violations:
      02/14/2009  	EXPIRED TAG - 6 MOS OR LESS W A   (Convicted: 04/16/2009)

    2009 was a pretty bad year for you wasn't it? I'd say you have a chance, but you'd need at minimum 3 years of clean driving to be considered in this economy and even then you may have a tough time. i would not say you're disqualified but I things will be difficult.

    Good luck to you

      12/10/2009 Failure to obey traf instr sign/device. "Convicted." Even standing alone, it's too recent and a "mover". Just about any department is going to want a minimum of three years of violation free driving. Try to understand that currently, and for a variety of reasons, agencies have a glut of highly qualified applicants. Many of these people bring violation free driving records to the process. In the meantime, continue to work at improving your driving record. Stay out of trouble, both in and out of the Reserve Unit. Good luck.

        I don't get it?




        Wouldn't it be much more intelligent for a person to investigate their chances of being hired by a police department PRIOR to shelling out $5-7000 only to just get a a piece of paper saying you are "certifiable" in the eyes of the law.

        Read PhilipCal's advice above.................I echo it 100%
        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

          Our insurance wouldn't cover you, so no, we wouldn't hire you. You have too many violations that are not ancient history.

            You need AT LEAST another 5-7 years with NO violations.
