    IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS


    1. Read the form carefully;

    2. It is mandatory that all information requested be supplied in the manner specified. Each question on this application must be answered; leave no blanks. If a question does not apply, input "D.N.A." (without the quotation marks). An incomplete application will not be accepted.
    (( This counts for out-of-character portions as well. ))

    3. Any false statements or omissions made on this questionnaire may cause your name to be removed from the eligibility list or be cause for immediate termination if an appointment is made;

    4. Multiple questions contain checkboxes. The checkboxes that apply to you have to be checked by adding a capital "X" (i.e "[X]"). If they don't apply to you, leave the check box unchecked (i.e "[-]");

    5. If any changes happen to the information in your Preliminary Background Application Form (( including OOC information )), you are required to report it within five days to the Recruitment and Employment Division (via PM to a member of the Recruitment and Employment Division or a reply to your topic). Failure to do so may cause your name to be removed from the eligibility list or be cause for immediate termination if an appointment is made;

    6. Do not bother police officers in regards to the time of response, or anything related to your application. Doing so will result in an automatic denial of your application. Do not call 911 unless it's an emergency. You may only call 1-800-ASKLSPD for non-emergency inquiries. If you need assistance, feel free to message a member of the Recruitment and Employment Division for additional information or help regarding the application process;

    7. (( If you were a previous member of the LSPD and have resigned or been terminated from the LSPD In-Character or Out-of-Character, you may not apply via the application process without prior permission. You will need to file a Reinstatement request in the Reinstatements and Transfers board and be granted to go through the regular hiring process in order to actually go through the application process. Ensure that you link your reinstatement request after it was concluded by Command Staff, not before. ))

    8. (( You may only have 1 forum account on the LSPD forums, this is extremely crucial if you were a past member in the faction before. Having more than one forum account could lead to you being forum banned depending on the circumstances. If you are having trouble reaching your forum account then please contact a member of Command Staff or above (green name on the forum). ))

    9. (( The Application process is in-character, therefore you are not allowed to name-change during the application process. If you do so, you will have to start the process over.

    [b]Disqualification[/b]
    
    There are very few [b][i]automatic[/i][/b] bases for rejection. Even issues of prior misconduct, such as prior illegal drug use, driving under the influence, theft, or even arrest or conviction are usually not, in and of themselves, automatically disqualifying. However, [b][i]deliberate misstatements or omissions[/i][/b] can and often will result in your application being rejected, regardless of the nature or reason for the misstatements/omissions. In fact, the number one reason individuals “fail” background investigations is because they deliberately withhold or misrepresent job-relevant information from their prospective employer.[/size]
    
    [b][size=125][i]BOTTOM LINE: You are responsible for providing complete, accurate, and truthful responses.[/i][/size][/b]
