Don't know the dept mentioned but I'll take a guess and say the obvious. Felony conviction, Conviction of a crime of moral turpitude. Any drug usage other than MJ experimentation. Dishonorable discharge from the military. This list is by no means all inclusive. Some depts are stricter than others.

LMAO!!!

I hate to be blunt like that, but damn.....it took me less that 30 seconds to type in "Nevada State Highway Patrol" into Google’s search engine, pull the main page up for Nevada DPS, look for the info, and post it.......

Yet.... this individual and others who want to join our profession, are too lazy to do that..... :rolleyes:

A message to everyone out there reading this wanting to become an LEO.... Whether it be local, state, or federal. Practice your investigative skills now and do stuff like this yourself. If you can't find the information after searching, then ask. Or if you find the information and then you have questions about what you read, ask away.......

Lazy? no. I was browsing the forums and being pressured to go by my girlfriend so I posted a quick question. One to find out what I wanted to know, two to become a regular on the boards and three because what agencies post on the web are not always all they are DQing for. Maybe I should of said something like "I've seen the NHP web site but is there anything else someone could tell me about there DQs?".

You ever heard of what happens when you assume? ;)

I hate to sound like I'm picking a fight, but damn...

If you had posted that in the first place, I am things would have turned out for you differently. But you didn't and you made yourself look lazy.

With the way your acting now, I highly doubt anyone will help you......

Getting advice on applying is one thing, asking a bunch of people on the Internet to read the application for you is another.

It's one of those "if you gotta ask, that probably means you are disqualified" type of questions.:D

Trolls

If it is obvious to the owner or any of the Mods that you are trolling, bashing or flaming, you can be banned (i.e. causing trouble, hate posts, personal attacks, etc.). Anti-police and Anti-government viewers are not welcome here as it should be obvious you're in the wrong place. If you want to ask an honest question like "I received a ticket for... I'm curious how the law handles that?" is fine. However, a question like "Why are all cops *******s?" is not acceptable.

Any ways,

Got one reply to my question. Thanks LasVegasOG. I'm in Vegas and will be applying south. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say your in Vegas also.
