I’ve tried cocaine here and there last time being over a year and used quite a bit of ecstasy when i was 15 haven’t used that since then.i am completely clean now.i want to apply around 24 yrs. old. gain some more life experience and give back to the community. what are my chances being i have completely changed everything in my life and i have only a youth charge? thx for your time


Sorry for the delay:

I think your chances are as good as you give them. If you don’t try you will never know. Your past is not as checkered as some I have known. Be honest during the entire process and try for more than one PD or Sheriff.

If you like action, go big city PD NYPD, LAPD LASO etc. Better advancement in large PD’s SO’s.

Don’t kid yourself. If you are being real about this, you have to stop all the things that will kill your dream, marijuana, etc. etc., risky stuff.

Get your youth under 18 record SEALED…

You should be good to go. Let us know how it all turns out.
