    DISQUALIFICATIONS

    Issues of prior misconduct, employee terminations, and non-felony arrests are usually not, in and of themselves, automatically disqualifying.  However, deliberate misstatements or omissions can and often will result in your application being rejected, regardless of the nature or reason for the misstatements/omissions.  In fact, the number one reason individuals "fail" background investigations is because they deliberately withhold or misrepresent job-relevant information from their prospective employer.  Be truthful, as there are criminal consequences for withholding information on a governmental document.

    Automatic basis for rejection:
    • Felony Conviction or Family Violence Offense
    • Currently under charge or indictment for any criminal offense or probation supervision
    • Convictions for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) within the last 5 years
    • Conviction for crime of moral turpitude
    • Drivers History that prohibits insurability
    • Inability to qualify for Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Certification
    • Recent drug use or excessive drug use in the past
    • Dishonorable Discharge with any branch of the U.S. Military
