I want to pursue a career in law enforcement. About 6 months ago I was issued a ticket for an expired vehicle registration tag. My vehicle had been expired by about 1 month. I paid the ticket quickly.


Will this incident disqualify me from pursuing a law enforcement career?

Anywhere I have ever worked and every agency I have knowledge of would not consider that a disqualifier in an of itself. Dishonesty about it would be an immediate disqualifer in most agencies. Just be honest and you should be fine!

 No it will not. That being said here is what I would have done: get the vehicle inspected, show up to court with the proof of vehicle inspected and registration renewed, get ticket dismissed because yes it is that easy. Here in NC that ticket is close to $200 now. Easier to show up to court and ask for a dismissal or PJC. 


You can't cure stupid.

And I will also BUMP this answer.  e8nt392, I thought we already went through this with you.  Do we need to do it again? DO NOT SPEAK AS THE RESIDENT EXPERT WHEN YOU KNOW FULL WELL THAT YOU ARE NOT.  Do yourself a favor and back it down a few notches and let those of us who are in the business answer the questions. Speak less and listen / read more.

As others have stated, in and of itself it is not a disqualifier.  People get busy and make mistakes, forgetting to renew thier tags or even renew their license.  Sometimes you catch it yourself and have to pay the appropriate late fees.  Sometimes they are found out when you get stopped by law enforcement and it is brough to your attention.  Sometimes it was not an act of forgetfulness but rather and act of "I can't afford it and let's see how long I can get away with it."  Most of the time these things are usually very easy to resolve.  On the other hand, if you make it a practice on not taking care of your obligations and a pattern, there may be an issue your background investigator will want to discuss with you.  If it has become a serious issue in your background, you may want to take care of business for a few years to clear those things up and show you have corrected the pattern.  The key is honesty and integrity and making sure you are taking care of your obligations.
