First of I would like  to say that I do some amateur powerlifting. Having said that, I am wanting to apply to the Austin Texas police department. Would I be disqualified during the pre-employment drug test for taking LEGAL pro-hormones? I buy them from a store so it's nothing shady or anything like that. I was just wondering if having them in my system at the time of the drug test would make me pop positive. I have a feeling that the Austin police only do a 10 panel drug test, which would not include anabolic steroids. Let me reassure you that the supplement I am on is in no way an illegal or anabolic steroid. Can anyone give me so insight? Thank you.

 As someone stated, "Call the agency and axe."

Joined today. First post and a skeleton profile. we call you folks a one post wonder. Why ask us? We are total strangers. New applicants concern me with these types of questions. Call the agency and axe as IowaNinersFan suggested.

You are applying to Austin PD. APD has the answer.

Well I was hoping to get an answer from someone on here familiar with the process. I do not want to ask Austin police, "axe" them, and have a black mark on my application because I asked them something that they potentially may look down on. Thanks for the information anyways.

First, best wishes on pursuing your goal to be an LEO. That being said, most of us here cannot answer for the hiring process of an agency in another state. I'm sure there are Austin PD folks that are members of this site, but whether they see the question and are willing to answer is another story. As stated before, your best bet is to call the agency and ask them about over the counter powerlifting supplements. If they do a drug screen and find it in your system, you'd have to explain it anyway. Might as well be up front with them.


Best wishes.

I wouldn't take any suppliments. Like others have suggested go to the department you are seeking employment with.  They may have a list of substances which are not accepted.


Have ASP will travel.

Justice is the one thing you should always find, you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta draw a hard line.

When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune and we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing whiskey for my men beer for my horses.

This!  In the enrollment/application packet there will be the departments drug use and criminal history guidelines.  You should be able to find this information fairly easily either online or at the department.  Good luck!
