My question involves criminal records for the state of: Iowa but it will apply to washington and/or colorado
When I was either 11 or 12, I went shopping with a friend and she ended up stealing a necklace, bracelet, and a ring from Claires. I didn't steal anything and I tried to stop her but she didn't listen. I now have a criminal record as an accessory to shoplifting. I am going to get it expunged when I am 18, but my question is, can I become a police officer with this record? I know that LEO's/background detectives can see it even when it is expunged. I am planning on getting my bachelors in criminal justice also, if that helps. Thanks!
