Hi, im new to PL and i am hoping to learn alot from the community. I have recently started classes at my local college in Texas to pursue a degree in Law Enforcement. I am now 21, but when i was 17 i was arrested for a Class A possession of a controlled substance. My lawyer was able to get me on pre-trial diversion for my offense. My question is, even with completeing my pre-trail diversion will this DQ me as a canidate to be a LEO? Thank you!

Welcome to P.L. but before asking this question you should maybe look on the Forum page on the right hand side there is a spot for civilians to read to answer most of your questions. Good luck with your endeavor and I hope your indiscretions as a youth does not deter your future plans. But there is a darn good chance that it will keep you from your chosen career path. Although this is something you will have to ask your future employer where ever that may be.

Why axe your question in multiple forums? Relax and take a deep breath. You state you are new to this site however, your profile shows a membership date of 12-15-11.  You have been a member long enough to know the answer to your question if you have viewed the forums.

While we can certainly make pretty well informed guestimations on your chances of success, nothing compares to contacting the agency you're interested in and asking them directly.


If I may ask, what were the circumstances surrounding your charge? Using, selling, wrong place/wrong time, etc.? As every state is different and have different categories/classes describing their offenses, I'm not familiar with what a Class A possession charge entails. Are we talking marijuana (bud, grams, ounces, pounds?) or something else?

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.

FYI- The OP PM'ed me yesterday and we've discussed his situation a little further. He's going to take some time to learn the site a bit and may post again with updates/answers when applicable.
