    Answered . You need to contact the agency you're applying to. Each agency is different. And might I suggest you work on your sentence structure and spelling - it's important for report writing. Good luck.

    Answered . You must contact the personnel department of each agency for which you are applying. They will certainly do a background check and find the arrest and conviction. Each agency has it's own requirements and standards. I doubt however, that, if you are on court probation, you will be accepted.

    Answered . Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely you would be accepted by any police agency while on probation. In fact, having a DUI conviction on your record will either close the door completely or make you wait a number of years before they'd even consider you.
