Careers: Police/DQ's and General Questions


Hi Jason thanks for taking time to answer my questions.
I will try and keep it short and to the point.
The Good: My Army career is getting close to its end I have served as an Infantryman for 5 years currently I'm serving as a Special Forces Sergeant. Once my contract is up I will be going into the CT national guard, I also plan to try and apply for PO or state trooper job in CT. I also have over 60 credits in Criminal Justice studies. No drugs No bad finances
The Not So Good:
2000 Larceny less than 500 found not guilty
2001 Driving w/o license
2001 Bounced check for 153 dollars no charge ordered to pay check within 30days
2006 Driving w/o license
All of these where expunged I will still list them on the PO application just curious how do I stand based on my past any input is highly valued


 Pretty much this is all petty stuff and the most recent being 7 years back shouldn't be, based on your excellent military record, a disqualifier.   Might cause a small bump on your road but otherwise nothing is jumping out at me as an automatic DQ.   Good luck!
