Can you become a police officer with felony's?

If you happen to have 3 B felony's and 12 D felony's, would there be any chance that you could get into the police force? This is a serious question by the way. Has anyone seen judge mathis? He had convictions before and is now a judge.

Any help would be great.

No, felons can not possess firearms. Besides someone with that many felonies demonstrates a massive disrespect for the law and has a obvious lack of good judgment.

The Police is probably one of the strictest career paths when it comes to having a criminal record, so no, having those felonies bars you from joining the Police.

Generally speaking, no, a felony conviction would preclude you being hired as a police officer even if you had the needed training. Judge Mathis is beside the point. You be an attorney and therefore be appointed as a judge with convictions, but that wasn't your question.

15 felonies? HAHAHAHAAAH. That would have been a no by the 2nd felony.

a criminal record doesn't stop a person from becoming a judge but the police force has hiogher standards and a criminal record is definitely a detriment to getting into the force.
