Some time ago I called the records department where the incident report is located (with the city). This is regarding roommate calling the police on me for a false accusation. It is filed under a verbal domestic.
I am going nuts over this. I was told by the person that future employers can conduct a background search with the local police department, and if they do, they can find the incident report.
My question is, how often do employers conduct such a background search? I was told this incident report will not be on my criminal history, however. Only with the local police department and if an employer conducts this level of a search, the employer can find the report.
I was also told the employer would need my consent. I would give the employer my consent. I would even explain the situation upfront on the application. Very embarrassing, but what’s done is done.
I am just very afraid of disappointment and being unable to support my family. How often do employers perform a local police department search for police contact?
What are my chances of finding a position of employment in my field? Does this make me seem to possess a bad character in the eyes of the employer? What to do?
Your help and advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
