NOTE TO JOB SEEKERS
Many public safety agencies conduct criminal background checks, truth verification examinations (lie detector tests), and psychological screenings as part of their hiring requirements.  While minimum requirements can vary between different agencies, felony convictions, some misdemeanor convictions, previous drug use, or history of mental illness may severely restrict employability.  Candidates are encouraged to speak with agency representatives about minimum qualifications, hiring processes and specific employment requirements.
