WOW, i am impressed with some of the perceptions and narrowmindedness of individuals. I personally am a covicted felon. i was charged with a class 1 drug related felony at the age of 17. i was convicted of that charged and tried as an adult just 3 months after being 18 years old. I have since found that it would be awesome to be involved in the excitement of the duties as a swat officer or the like. I am now almost 26 years old and am highly interested in the possibilities of this matter coming into fruition in my life. I do not consider myself a bad person i just made some bad decisions in life and since then GOD has made some pretty amazing changes with me, for me and i believe the good for others that may be helped through such events. Thus being said i believe that there is a way and all things are possible. I have spoke with an officer in myrtle beach sc and through our conversation he expressed that he was none the best person and shold not have been an officer, which leads me to believe that there is a possibility for me to be a proactive member to society as a whole and contribute to a better community and safer community. I believe that there could be multiple benefits with an opprotunity as such including helping drug addicts find a REAL sollution to their problem. Sooooo, i guess after all being said I would find it to be a BAD ASS job to enjoy and would like to hear from some KNOWLAGABLE individuals with some possitve feedback and encouragement with reality being in mind. Thanks for your inquiries and considerations.

I don't think you will get many optomistic responses here, in all states as far as i know , a convicted felon cannot become a law enforcement officer, does not matter how far back the conviction was or how good of a life you have let since it happened.  Sorry.

Try a infantry position with the military. I'm not sure if you'll get a waiver, but that's the closest you'll get to either SWAT or DEA.

WTH is in the water lately? Or did a new video game get released and now everyone thinks it would be "BAD ASS" to put the controller down and go play for real? For Pete's sake, closing your eyes and wishing really, really, really, hard is not gonna change facts! You have a felony drug charge. That is an automatic and mandatory DQ for local LE, not to mention with the DEA!! I know, I know, you're situation is different and you have really changed and people should just forget about your past 'cuz it's inconvenient for you. Well, reality check time. It ain't gonna happen, no way, no how. And I'm not even gonna get into the whole "post an intro first" thingy....

Does the OP know what DEA stands for? I just find it funny considering the felony they've already earned themselves.


As everyone has already said Felony means you are NEVER allowed. You want to help drug addicts, get into therapy. Not going to be in LE. Think everyone on here is lying to you, call recruiters and ask if you'd be allowed to enter LE with a felony.


If you only want positive feedback and people to hold you hand, you're really not meant for LE. Welcome to your new reality.


Btw what part of "Felons can't own guns" and "Cops carry guns" isn't clicking for you?

Oh Lord. Why? You do not want to hear what "Knowledgeable" Officers say, you want to hear what you want to hear and that ain't gonna happen here. You will not become any type of Officer, period. You have a felony conviction against you and prohibits you from becoming any type of Officer in the State of South Carolina, period. That also prevent you from becoming an Officer in any other State that I know of as well. You CANNOT carry a firearm because you are a convicted felon, period!


Now go away!

I wonder how many times this will be said, but yet the OP still will never get it.

I'm not a LEO, and even I know the OP has ABSOLUTELY NO chance in LE.  Don't even have a chance in Security - don't bother applying.

I'm normally a big fan of graveyard shift. However, the thought of working graves at WM scares the heck out of me! Maybe I can get Redlight for back up with the zombies!!
