I am getting ready to pull my state and federal files to apply for an LEO job. One of the questions that will be asked will be to list all contact with law enforcement. I had only 1 run-in that I am worried about. About 12 years ago I was laid off from the auto industry and was forced to file for bankruptcy. The bank took my mobile home. About 4 months later, while it was still abandoned, some kids broke into it and accidently set it on fire (at least thats what the detective on scene had concluded in the paper the next day). I was called at home and had to take a copy of my paperwork to the scene and was questioned by the local pd and released without being charged and was never contacted again. The county arson investigator told me not to worry about it and stated that I was not a suspect (after only 10 or 15 minutes of questioning). The honest to god truth was that I was home with my kids at the time. My question is whether or not this will be held against me during the application process? Would those that read this and have served on interview commitee's have any advice or am I overreacting?
No announcement yet.
