first off, he'll be pissed at himself for awhile, best deal is to get his mind off of it in the mean time while its still fresh, except he's also gotta educate himself on the legal shit he's about to face. (Complete contradictions I know)

Will he always have to disclose this? Specifically for law enforcement type jobs?

For regular job most likely not for a law enforcement deffinatly
he wont even have to say anything but they will see it

That's what I said. I remember way back before I took my written test we had to fill out a 15 point a 15 point checklist and if u answered yes to any of them I think he weren't permitted to take the exam. I believe DUI was one of them now that I think about it. Hopefully he learned from his mistake.

Yes. If he doesn't disclose, they will certainly perceive that as an attempt to deceive. And they will ultimately find out since a background check (including police records) is required for a great many jobs today, including law enforcement, the government, the military, and so on.

Is this his first DUI? If so, he may be able to get it dropped. I don't know what the laws in California are, but a few friends of mine were able to take the AA classes and get their DUIs dropped. I think they still had to pay the fines and had their licenses suspended for a year.

Tell him to read his county's laws on DUI . .20 can be a different ball game even on the first . Nearly 3x the limit .

Here are the requirements for employment at the Fresno, CA Police Department:
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS:

Have no felony convictions. Felony arrest(s) with no conviction(s) may be cause for rejection.

Have no recent or extensive misdemeanor record, including traffic citations.

A misdemeanor record of assaultive behavior, regardless of the time of occurrence may be cause for rejection.
I don't know how long "recent" is but I would guess that they would want to wait a few years to see if the behavior was repeated.

If your friend is serious about a career in law enforcement and doesn't want to just sit around waiting for his record to clear he might want to pursue a degree in criminal justice or look into joining the military as an MP.

True....he might not get much help because he was that intoxicated. Hope for the best...he's lucky he didn't kill anyone or himself.

If he has said any of the above you need to ask if he has a plan and get him help. Seriously dude, coments about suicide are seriouse and he needs to be asked about them. There are ways and times to worry about his carreer, but his life is a bit more seriouse. I don't feel sorry for him either, but don't want him to kill himself.

Yeah California is pretty tough on DUI . But they have lightnes up a little over the last couple years . If he can afford it he should get a lawyer . Could save him say a breathelizer on his car or jail time .

Sounds pretty serious .keep an eye on him . No car and soon no license . He shouldn't overreact . He's gotta man up .
