PostSubject: Chances to become a Police Officer   Sat Aug 29, 2009 6:53 am

Hello, I was wondering what my chances are to become a Police Officer. I am still in the Military, (the Army), and will have just under 9 years when I get back from Iraq, (this is my 4th deployment). I have a little over a year left to get my associates' degree, and may pursue my bachelors' as well. I am in excellent physical condition, and have high moral standards as an NCO. I have one minor traffic violation, from 10 years ago, other than that my records are clean. My concern is that before the Army, I smoked pot a number of times, and a few years back, experimented with shrooms. I regret that every day. Would I be disqualified for experimenting with a drug like that? I'm curious. It would be another year at least before I would consider applying anywhere, as I want to finish up my degree first. I appreciate any responses! Thanks!

Some departments would still hire you (maybe in a couple years).

Some departments might still consider you. My department would not.

At this point, the shrooms are the only thing that could hold you back. Finish a bachelors' degree, and apply. There are definitely officers out there that have experimented with drugs such as shrooms before becoming officers Exclamation
