Background

When applying for a job with a police or security agency, it is important to tell the truth on the application.  It is likely that any significant falsification will be discovered.  A background check will be made and your friends, relatives, and associates will be interviewed.

Having a small blot on your record is no where near as important as telling the truth.  If you lie on your application, there is a concern that you may lie on police reports, or worse, in testimony you give under oath.

Certainly you are not required to provide information that is not requested.  You can also be careful to phrase your responses to applications in a truthful, but favorable manner.  It is also a good idea to work on repairing any damage to your reputation and to try to learn skills or information to help you to overcome previous failings; that's what the SGT Says.
