To become a Police Officer you must hold yourself to a higher standard. During the background process, applicants are disqualified for choices they have made earlier in their lives. So what can you do? Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Don’t do drugs and don’t associate with others who use illegal drugs! – When asked about past drug use BE HONEST!

Keep your driving record clean! – Applicants are disqualified for too many tickets, accidents, and license suspensions. In addition, make sure you are properly insured. 

Make physical fitness a way of life! – Make sure you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Your life or somebody else’s life may depend on it!


Pay your bills! – The way you manage your personal finances assists the department in determining your level of responsibility and maturity.


Be honest! – A lot of applicants are disqualified for lying or for integrity issues. Tell the truth no matter how embarrassed you are about your past mistakes. Remember all applicants are administered a polygraph examination during the hiring process!


Sharpen your writing skills! – Strong writing skills are very important for a successful career in law enforcement. Applicants are not selected for poor grammar, punctuation and spelling.

Be Careful on the internet! – Remember what you post on the internet represents who you are. What kind of impression are you making?

Do a great job! – Your employment history is very important. Make sure you develop and maintain a strong work ethic. Don’t call in sick if you are not sick, give two week’s notice if you resign from a position and report to work on time with a great attitude!

Make a good impression! – We need applicants who believe in themselves. Be assertive, self confident, outgoing, compassionate and learn to communicate well with a wide variety of people.

Maintain your values and integrity! – Don’t let your friends or co-workers pressure you into compromising your values or integrity. Remember integrity is “What you do when nobody is looking”!
