What does a police background check for recruits entail?
I want to join the academy, and am curious about the requirement of an "extensive" background check before being accepted. How are these background checks performed, and exactly how "extensive" can they be?

First you just don't join the academy, you have to apply like you would the police department
Smoking Joe is wrong, it is a very extensive background check
They check credit score, criminal records, driving record, civil proceedings, past, and current employers, family background and educational history
So it is very in depth, you have to be approved before you can enter

Did you ever have any criminal charges? Were you convicted? Otherwise I don't think they care.
