    Answered . A police officer can date a felon, yes. The fact that your BF is a felon will not stand in your way of gaining a law enforcement career.

    Answered . Yes, you can become a police officer. It will be your background that they are interested in. However, keep in mind, as with any job, they can inquire about your family and friends, etc.
