PostSubject: Will my past drug use prevent me from becoming a cop?   Sat Oct 03, 2009 6:41 pm

I smoked pot about 35 times my senior year of high school and I took one hydrocodone. By the time I join the academy I will have been clean for 4 years. Will I still be able to get accepted to a police academy or hired? Thanks for the help.

A Wes wrote, it depends on the department. Many departments would still give you a chance based on what you wrote. Some departments that I know of would not consider you because of the number of times you have used marijuana.
