Hi my name is david 23 years old i was just wondering if being fired from three jobs will disqualify me from becoming a police officer, i got fired in my 1st job for fighting with a customer i was about 16 to 17 years of age at that time this happen at burgerking my second job where i got fired was from a hospital i was checking my personal email and i had alot of spam including adultporn sites so im guessing my manager detected those sites, so i got called and he told me about the sites and i got fired i was 19 at that time, my third job where i got fired from was from a warehouse , i cursed out the supervisor so he also fired me , so will this disqualify me.

None of what you mentioned would automatically disqualify you with any police departments that I know of. But, it could make it difficult for you to get hired. If there are plenty of other applicants similar to you that haven't been fired from jobs, you probably won't get hired. If you were fired once or even twice, it wouldn't look so bad. Nineteen is still relatively young though so it shouldn't hold you back forever if you're an otherwise good candidate. If you've had a job since then, hopefully you'll get a good recommendation from your supervisor. If you haven't had a job, you should get one, and start improving your work reputation as soon as possible. Maybe even consider getting a full-time and part-time job or two part-time jobs. Let us know how it goes.

The problem is you are only 23 and this happened not too long ago. If it was once at 16, than again at 19, than again at around 20 it looks like a pattern and a risky one. Maybe you've changed but remember it's all about the competition and you are competing with other people for these jobs.

My best suggestion to you is to find a new line of work for now and look into becoming an officer sometime later in your life once you grow up a little more. I'm not saying that as an insult, but you still don't seem to be very mature right now, and I'm only 22 and I'm not really mature either, which is why I don't have any intentions of becoming a cop anymore. I have studied the profession and hiring process for the past couple years now and learned a lot of things though.
