Question
When they do a back round check to become a cop can they see personal snapchats you have sent and received from people?

Answer
Melanie:

It depends on the security settings one establishes on his/her account.  The settings should be set for only those person(s) that you want to access your file.  If you do not specify settings then it may be possible for your file to be opened.  Sometimes, background investigators will ask to view an account with the applicant's permission.  I would imagine that a routine Internet search may also be done on applicants.  I hope this helps.
