I am thinking about applying to a couple police forces. However, I have been told by many people that it is imperative that you are at least three years clear of any detected or undetected criminal activity. My background is essentially clean, other than the fact that I have drank and drove numerous times in the past. I stopped doing that about a year and a half ago. Would that constitute criminal activity? Is it even worth applying or will I just get deferred?
Thx. I would appreciate any answers and input ot help me out.
