Jeremiah TrejoI was planning on submitting my application this Monday but I just heard about the application drive set for April 30th. I really want to take advantage of the opportunity but the only thing that may be a problem is I'm still needing a notary for my application. Is that something that is available at the application drive or does that need to be done prior? Any information is greatly appreciated.

Jasmine OrtizI know that a completed application with all necessary documents is needed but in the case of being fairly new to Texas we are missing transcripts and such. Is it still ok to show up and apply? Is there a grace period allowed to turn in any missing documents?

The Application Drive is just two days away. We are allowing applicants to submit the application in PT gear. Here are a few guidelines to follow:

- Absolutely no tank tops, short shorts, sleeveless tops, spandex (only under shorts), tight or revealing clothing will be permitted.
- Feel free to bring drinks to ensure you stay hydrated and a snack lunch. During the computer exam, drinks must be placed on the table outside the computer lab.
- No jewelry is allowed on the course. This includes necklaces, watches, bracelets, rings and earrings.
- Bring a small bag to secure personal items since they are not allowed in the testing room or course. This will help ensure items are not lost.

We are expecting showers on Saturday. With that said, we ask all attending the Application Drive to please bring a change of clothes. You'll be taking the Physical Ability Test prior to the computer exam and the computer lab will be chilly. We want you to be comfortable since it is a 3 hour exam.

Jonathan LoeraOn the application it states to put the case number for accidents in which I was the driver I called APD and they stated that even if an officer came to the scene there is not always a police report filed. Thank you, I am trying to make the application drive!

Arturo Gómez TagleI've tried to do research on the topic myself, if someone sold drugs over 4 years ago and never got in trouble or arrested and don't have a criminal record at all are they allowed to be a cop?
