Disqualifiers: The public places a high level of standards for “what they expect” of police officers than they do for most other occupations in both the public and private sectors. For this reason, it is expected that a candidate for the position of Police Officer must demonstrate, through a comprehensive review of their history, a higher standard in their character than would be required for employment outside the police service. As such, the Arcanum Police Department standards of expectations place a strong emphasis on qualifying and disqualifying criteria. The following criteria are considered in disqualifying candidates from being appointed as Police Officers for the Arcanum Police Department. They are applicable for all candidates in a fair, equitable, and consistent manner.
