Employment Disqualifiers

Certain convictions DISQUALIFY you from being certified. Lifetime disqualifiers listed below will cause your application for Correctional Officer to be rejected. Failure to disclose a conviction may result in your application being rejected from consideration.

NOTE: If you have criminal history that you believe should have been “expunged” or removed from your record, but you do not know (proof in hand) that it was expunged or removed; you should verify your belief prior to applying. A crime is not removed from your record until you go through the formal process to have it removed. Believing a conviction was removed, or forgetting a conviction existed, is not a valid defense and your application for Correctional Officer will be denied.
