Driving

How is your driving record?  If you drive with a lead foot and have all kinds of traffic tickets, how can you be expected to enforce laws you disobey?  If you drive in such a way that you get tickets, you need to change your driving habits.

Don't speed, don't run red lights or stop signs.  Don't drink and drive.  A single driving under the influence ticket will almost guarantee that you will never get hired as a cop.  All these behaviors are dangerous and are leading causes of fatal traffic collisions. 

If you have a couple tickets, you may have to wait a few years, with a perfect record, before agencies will hire you.  Your vehicle should be in top condition too.  Properly registered, smog and safety certificates if your state uses them, proper equipment, fully legal.  I have known agencies to do a vehicle inspection for applicants prior to hire; that's what the SGT Says.
