Hello Everyone,


I have a discussion that maybe someone reading can give me a few pointers. Im going to start from the beginning. Two years of ago, (2010), I was cited with 3 misdemeanor traffic violations consisted of Speeding, Reckless Driving, and Attempt To Elude and I was found guilty of the charges by fighting it in court and lost. After the incident, I was put on probation for a year including paying monthly fines and license under suspension. In order for me to get my GA license back reinstated, I had to attend a one day defensive driving class. I received my certificate and a copy was given to my P.O. Officer.  All my fines was paid in full and I was off Probation along with paying the fine of getting my license reinstated for GA. Now I hold a valid MS license with no any tickets since then. I moved back to my home state, using my POST 9/11 benefits from the military to pay for going to school to get my degree in Criminal Justice. Anyway, I applied for the Trooper position and I was notified to take a physical fitness test and passed. Also, we had to turn in a complete background packet the same day of our PT test. Eventhough I checked out the disqualifiers  for the department, I still decided to take a chance. I was honest in  my application packet about everything that happened hopefully they will look accept me as being  a Honest candidate. Now I received an email from HR stating that they need a copy of my MS driving history. I emailed a copy of that to them. Class starts in January 2013. We all as humans makes mistakes and have to pay for them as well. But also, we also deserve to have a second chance. I am praying that it all works out for me.

Okay. Be honest with them and remember there will be applicants with a cleaner background.

Yes I have been honest to the best of my knowledge. Basically, Ive been trying to sell myself to them to show that I dont go out and break the law.  Also, I am in the process of rejoining the Army by going Army Reserve. I have 11 years total in service.

 Hello, 


I am new to this forum but I have been itching with many questions. I have applied to the ga state patrol, I have the pt test this Friday as well as the background packet drop off. One, will there be a drug/alcohol examination accompanied with the physical aspect? Two, in the disqualifiers I see " multiple misdemeanors establishing a pattern for misconduct of the law". I have been arrested twice. One for a disorderly conduct in 2009, another for DUI which was plead to a reckless driving in 2010. Would these be considered as disqualifiers?

jbic. Like many new members you axe us instead of asking the agency you are applying with. I would axe when you drop off the background packet. New applicants concern me.
