Q: Am I eligible or qualify to become a police officer in Florida? I have felony record of fraud that is currently sealed. The record has been sealed since 2006 however, the crime was committed in 2002 and I should be eligible for expunction next summer. I have read many forums on Google regarding that aspect and some says it depends on the agency or state law. In one particular post says that most agencies in Florida would hire someone as a police officer with a sealed or expunged felony of fraud over 10 years however, an anonymous police officer in Florida says that the sealed or expunged record must obtain a full pardon from the governor in order to be eligible. If the last statement is true, how do I go about getting a full pardon from the governor?
