police officer with hiv
Nov 14, 2013

May I become a police officer with an HIV diagnosis? The police in my area already know my status.

Response from Mr. Chambers

It is highly doubtful that any organization today would try to impose such a restriction, even among the police. The final answer, however, is with the department you intend to join and their eligibility requirements. Should they try to exclude you for that reason, I would encourage to consult with an attorney at your local, federal EEOC office (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission).

Good luck, Jacques
