All students taking Criminal Justice courses will be subject to a criminal background check. A criminal conviction will not automatically prevent a person from being accepted into the program. The applicant would be denied acceptance if they have a “disqualifying conviction” or committed “disqualifying conduct” as defined by the Maine Criminal Justice Academy. Such conviction / conduct prohibits a person from being certified / licensed as a police officer in the State of Maine.
