  • Ticket Concern after point erased

    Hey Guys i was wondering if you could help me out. I used the search feature but did not see anything constructive i could use to answer my question.

    I moved from NewYork to California last year and have applied to multiple police departments. The last traffic violation i had was in NY over 2 years ago and understand most departments want you to have a clean driving record for 2 years. Unfortunately last month i received my first California speeding violation and have elected to attend traffic school. Will this last violation disqualify me from future departments?

    I had an interview with a dept one week after a received that violation and let the BI know and he said it shouldn't be a problem. One week later I receive a letter telling me i needed a 2 year clean driving history before re-applying.

    My question is since i just attended traffic school and that dismissed the complaint does that re-instate me for the application process? If that last violation becomes deleted then the previous violation i had was over 2 years ago and that fits in their "2 year time frame" there referring too.
    According the the section code below my violation will be dismissed but can the background investigators still use this against me?

    California V C Section 1803.5 Report of Court Action Traffic Violator School Completion

    1803.5. (a) In accordance with Section 41501 or 42005, the clerk of a court or hearing officer, when a person who receives a notice to appear at a court or board proceeding for a violation of any statute relating to the safe operation of vehicles is granted a continuance of the proceeding in consideration for ( )1 completion of a program at a school for traffic violators, a licensed driving school, or any other court-approved program of driving instruction, and which results in a dismissal of the complaint in consideration for that ( )1 completion, shall prepare an abstract of the record of the court or board proceeding, certify the abstract to be true and correct, and cause the abstract to be forwarded to the department at its office at Sacramento within 10 days after the complaint is dismissed.

    This proves what we have been telling applicants for a long time..................the BI is just a fact finder-----DECISIONS are made above the BI's pay grade.

    The bottom line is ----if the department requires 2 yrs violation free--------------they mean 2 yrs VIOLATION free

    The use of "traffic school" may erase the points & save your insurance from going up.................but you still need to disclose this as a violation, & set out any penalty the departments you are applying to require.

    The department is much more interested in the fact you violated the traffic laws than they are interested in how you avoided your points & how you saved some money on your insurance.

    Yep-----the fact that you violated the traffic laws of the state of California will be used against you.
    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

      I got a ticket ON THE WAY to my LAPD background interview from an LAPD motor cop. After him asking where I was going and me explaining he responded with, "You should know better, sign here..."

      I still got hired.

      Going to traffic school doesn't make it go away in the Department's eyes but admitting you were wrong and taking steps to correct it may help you out.

        It's been noted, but agencies are more interested in the reason for the original citation than they are in the final disposition. The time frame between last citation and application is determined by the individual department. It's been noted as well, that Background Investigators gather facts.They do this in a dual role. One to determine if an applicant meets the minimum standards for employment. Secondly, if there is anything in the applicant's background which would disqualify the applicant from employment with the agency. Put simply, they gather facts. They report their findings to those higher up in the hiring chain. I would suggest you pay a little more attention to your driving. In doing so, you won't have these issues to concern yourself with.
