 Be honest. Being upfront about it is better than you not saying anything and them finding out about it,

 Its going to be up to the agency if they want to hire you with that kind of background. But keep in mind you will be going up against others with no criminal history or problems with the law their entire life. People with military and college degrees. It never hurts to try, but be honest and tell them, do not sugar coat the incident or hide anything because they will kind out the truth. And if comes back you lied you can kiss your career goodbye! 


You wouldn't go in there for a million bucks...A Cop does it for less...A Reserve does it for free....

Subbing for uncledennis1, ask the department..  You didn't say much about your juvenile record, guilty, not guily,  plead,  or nolo condre, nor the details deadly weapon was it a gun, knife club , fists , etc.  I don't need an answer but the type of weapon may have a bearing on the dept's willingness.  A BI investigator will find your juvenile record, even if it has been sealed or expunged, the preliminary backgorud probably did not dig that deep.

I showed i had a pistol never pointed it or said i was going to use it. the firearm was unloaded. i was placed in custody and realeased to my mom a couple hours later.

Remember, a substitute is typically not as good as the original.

You are going to have some serious explaining to do with any agency you apply with and, to be completely honest with you, your chances may not be good.


The true story of what actually occurred aside, the thing that raised an eyebrow for me in your post was your apparent attempt to downplay/justify the seriousness of the crime. Rather than take responsibility for your actions you made excuses (I was scared, I never pointed it anyone or said I was going to use it, it was unloaded, etc.) That doesn't sound like a mature, responsible adult who has admitted their mistakes, learned from them, and moved on.


And were you carrying the firearm with you at the time of the confrontation, or did you retrieve it from home after the fact?

MH557 you are very right. I wasnt thinking in the way a worded my statement the bottom line is there was no justified reason for my actions. It was wrong period. I had the .25cal me with while this took place. I never left and came back with the weapon.
