PostSubject: police app question   Mon Nov 15, 2010 5:16 pm

One question on my police application is have you ever resigned after being informed an employer intended to discharge you?

I never have been fired or disciplined. I left my last job to pursue a law enforcement career, as this was not the direction I wanted my career to go. However, my last week employed I was on vacation and told my manager I was going to quit. He convinced me not to but then later in the week he called and said we would have a meeting when I came back where I may or may not have lost my job. It was simply in regards to talking to suboordinates outside of work which was taken very seriously. It was real stupid. I said I won't be returning. They marked that I quit. Nothing was ever documented, not sure what they would have documented anyway.

Up to this point I have been answering yes and explaining my answer but would it be a bad idea to say no now? I never have been DQ'D for this and I was given my entired vacation pay plus bonuses and even told to put my manager down for a reference.
I am not sure whether applications can be reviewed by police departments and/or background checks. Not that I am trying to lie but based upon exigent circumstances I am not sure if this situation applies and/or if I am giving too much information.

Sounds like you could answer either way. To be safe, it might be better to continue answering yes and explaining. This is probably more important if it hasn't been very long since you quit.

Thanks. It has been about 1 1/2 years but I haven't even worked since then. I was able to save a lot of money and decided to get myself better qualified for police departments and went to the police academy. I graduated a few months ago and have started applying since taking my certification test. I will be working soon if I can not find anything but being a police officer would make me really happy and I would look forward to going to it everyday. I guess I could work part time til I find something.

I agree. You don't want a department to even think that you might have been trying to hide something!
