    Default Class A Misdemeanor and Police Employment in Texas

    I have a class A misdemeanor conviction for DWI from three years ago. My question is, is there anything I can do to still become a police officer in Texas. Will getting my record sealed or Having a Non-Disclosure help in a background investigation?.........

    I doubt that nondisclosure would help, even assuming you qualify, because law enforcement agencies would continue to have access to the record.

    Have you verified that, in fact, your drunk driving conviction would disqualify you from law enforcement work?

    Thanks for the info Mr. Knowitall. In Texas you cannot have anything above a class B misdemeanor to qualify for law enforcement. I don't know if this is true for other states though.

    What if the Class A Misdemeanor is sealed? Is there a chance? I was turned down by FWPD because I have a Class A Misdemeanorfrom 14 years ago. I am in the process of having it sealed. I hope this will help me out.

    What do you propose to be the difference between "sealing" and an "order of nondisclosure"?
