PostSubject: will this stop me from becoming a police officer   Mon Jan 11, 2010 2:54 pm

I'm 17 and I want to be a police officer, but about 8 months ago I was caught growing pot plants, I went to court and pleaded no contest or somthing like that, and I went through a program and the charge was dismissed it was a 3rd degree feloney manufactored of a controlled substance.

Now i have no education but right now im going to school to get my ged and I wanna go to college and get a aa degree in criminal justice to be a cop but I dont want to get a degree that serves no purporse!

If you stay clean and out of trouble, you should be good down the road.

It's not going to look good, but it is good that the charge was dismissed. If you do the best that you can to make yourself a desirable candidate, you can still become a police officer eventually. Get your GED, and get a college degree. Get a 4 year degree if you can. Get a good GPA. You don't need a degree in criminal justice to become a police officer. If there is another field that you are also interested in, consider a major in that field. That way you don't have to worry. There are many good majors for police officers! However, the most important thing that you can do is to refrain from any illegal activity!

Serving in the military would be an excellent decision. Definitely get a degree also!

Drug policies vary. My department wouldn't hire you for a very long time.
