PostSubject: Will this prevent me from getting a position?   Wed Jun 16, 2010 3:00 pm

I am in my early 20s and I have a bachelors degree in IT; I am also
getting a masters in a related field. I am very fit and do a lot of sports.
Here are the bad things I've done in the past:
1) Stole some girls lunch money when I was 10.
2) Stole 2 CDs from Walmart at 15.
3) At 21, drove 2 times while buzzed (about 4 beers)
4) At 21 or maybe 22, bought alcohol about 4 times to some 18 year olds who are my friends (twice was a case of beer, another was two handles of vodka, and last one was two bottles of bacardi 151).
5) I have downloaded some music illegally between the age of 16-22
6) I have ran a few red lights over the course of last 6 years.

Those are pretty much all the awful things I did that I can think of.
Please note that I have never been caught for any of those, so my criminal history is clean.
I have never received a ticket so my driving record is good.
I have no debt and my credit score is good.
Finally, I have never done any illicit drugs of any kind.

I am almost 24. So my question is, do I have a good chance of becoming a cop?

I DON'T THINK ANYTHING YOU LISTED IS THAT UNCOMMON. THE ONLY THINGS I WOULD WORRY ABOUT AT ALL IS GIVING ALCOHOL TO MINORS AND THE ILLEGAL DOWNLOADING OF MUSIC NOT TOO LONG AGO. I THINK YOUR CHANCES ARE DECENT Exclamation

Since when did they make a big deal over downloading music?

IT MIGHT NOT BE SUCH A BIG DEAL, BUT IF IT WAS DONE SO ILLEGALLY, IT IS THEFT. IF YOU KNEW IT WAS ILLEGAL, AND IF IT HAPPENED NOT TOO LONG AGO, IT COULD HURT YOUR CHANCES.
