All students taking Criminal Justice courses will be subject to a criminal background check. While a criminal conviction does not automatically prevent one from being accepted into the program, an applicant will be denied acceptance if s/he has a “disqualifying conviction” or committed “disqualifying conduct” as defined by the Maine Criminal Justice Academy. Such convictions or conduct prohibit a person from being certified / licensed as a police officer in the State of Maine.
