I will start for the Portland Police Bureau Aug. 2nd after initially applying for their records division last Sept! It took 7 months to finish the background investigation. I have a ridiculous number of family members so this likely slowed the process down. I just want applicants to know that I was approved WITH one infraction as a juvenile, admitted drug use, and a husband who has a criminal history. What worked for me, I'm sure was the Bachelors degree in CJ, volunteer work for the DA's office and JDH, COMPLETE honesty and transparency (even when it sounded awful, and trust me IT DID), and most importantly--YEARS between youthful indiscretions for both me and my husband. I'm so relieved! Granted, this is for the records division, not as an LEO, but the scrutiny is almost just as bad as if I were applying to be an officer.

Congratulations!


Aim at the high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, not the second time and maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect. Finally you'll hit the bull's-eye of success.

There's a lesson for folks to learn in this original poster's story.


See if you can figure it out.

It has been years since she screwed up and she owned it and admitted her transgressions. Good job young lady.
