I’ve been arrested/charged before; can I still be a member?

Having an arrest/conviction (or other similar charges) does not automatically preclude you from membership.  We can not make a determination until after you apply for membership in CAP.  Just make sure that you note the charges on the application and supply any required information.  Once the application comes to National Headquarters the Confidential Screening Coordinator will review your case.
