PostSubject: Can I become an officer with dual citizenship?   Tue Oct 12, 2010 8:37 pm

I was born in Russia, but have lived in US since I was 13. I am 25 now. I have both Russian and US citizenships. Since I am a US citizen, I was wondering can I become a police officer in US and still retain my Russian citizenship? Or do you think they would ask me to give it up? If I swear on the application as well as the polygraph that I have never been associated with the Communist party (I know they ask that question) do you think it would be ok for me to keep my Russian citizenship? My dad works for the US gov't and he has a secret clearance (he has a dual citizenship as well). The reason I would like to keep it is because Russian citizenship is expensive and it gives me an opportunity to visit Russia for a vacation or something like that if I decide to in the future (Russia has some beautiful places to visit). BTW, I have not traveled outside of a country for the past 12 years if that makes a difference.
So what do you think?

I believe that you would be able to retain dual citizenship.
