I’m applying for a secret clearance. nearly 6 years ago I was arrested for DUI. Long story short, it was dismissed. I have a couple of questions relating to questions of the 21 page SF86 from 2008.
Under 22, Police Record, 22e asks “have you ever been charged with any offences related to alcohol or drugs.” of course I answered yes, because I have.
My question is: how do I answer 24a, “has your use of alcohol had a negative impact on your work performance, your professional or personal relationships, your finances, or resulted in intervention by law enforcement/public safety personnel?”
do I say yes or no? what is it asking? my only issue ever for the sake of this form is that I was arrested for DUI. I answered truthfully on 22e. So is 24a asking, say, “have you had the police called on you?” or since I’ve been arrested for DUI does the part about “…intervention by law enforcement…” part apply?
