  • Active warrants - warrants can be taken care of and an applicant can re-apply immediately
  • Felony convictions and misdemeanor convictions - reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

It is vital to note that even individuals who may not pass the background check requirements are still highly encouraged to attend CPC meetings and make suggestions and formal recommendations to the boards. They are also encouraged to actively participate in all steps of the recommendation process, except for the final vote.
