I applied for a Police position, and during my background check I was told by my investigator that I was arrested in 2000. In 2000 I was taken to the police station in cuffs, I was 7 months pregnant and was told by the officer that I was not under arrest, I was just being held for questioning. After hours of being held at the police station, I was told I could leave and that my photo and finger prints would be destroyed. Young and pregnant I took their word and put the matter behind me. Now I have a degree in criminal justice and would like to pursue a career as a police officer. I was misinformed during that "arrest" and it is being held against me. NYPD violated me in 2000 and they are violating me now. I have a clean record and have never been in trouble.
