My question involves a background check in the State of: Michigan
When I was 16, I got in a fight with my dad at home (not a fist fight, just wrestling around) and the police were called. I was arrested and adjudicated for misdemeanor domestic violence after pleading no contest, and placed on probation. I did violate this probation a few times by doing simple but stupid things, like going to a party after my probation curfew at night. However, those probation violations were not criminal charges and a visit to my county building has revealed that the only thing on my record is a "petition" for misdemeanor domestic violence.
I have found that under the circumstances, this adjudication/petition does NOT bar me from possessing or handling firearms.
When I go to apply for a job in the law enforcement field after I graduate from college, there will be no less than six years between me and my juvenile petition, I will have a bachelors in criminal justice, and three years of experience in the security industry. My petition will also be expunged by then, though I'm aware I have to disclose it anyway. The petition is the only thing on my record, not even any traffic violations.
What is my outlook for getting a career in law enforcement?
