I do not remember the dates of my traffic violations or other criminal convictions. Do I still need to include them?
Absolutely. The City requires full disclosure of criminal background regardless of when the criminal activity occurred or the location where the criminal activity was recorded. It is the candidate’s responsibility to be aware of his or her own record and to provide accurate information. If undisclosed information is discovered during a background investigation it may disqualify a candidate for employment with the City.
