So, my DH is considering a career in law enforcement (patrol officer) and we've been going through the rigamaroll of all the paperwork and all that, but we've been a little concerned about the "background check" they do... DH has some less-than-stellar arrest history (once for possession of a tiny amount of pot, twice for bench warrants on unpaid fines) and he sold pot for awhile when he was a teenager. But it was all four years ago or more, and he's been clean and full-time employed since. So, we are wondering if the BG check will disqualify him - they polygraph so we don't want him to lie, but we need to know if he is at all eligible so we know whether he ought to spend the time pursuing it... Any insight, anybody who has gone through it or knows someone who has?Answer Question

I used to be a cadet when I was 16 and they grilled me hard.I went to the academy and everything.You have to have a clean background.No arrests or anything like that.I have like 3 cousins who are police officers.One is in charge of hiring he is a lieutenant.He is very picky.Why don't you just call,maybe la pd could hire him.
