Hi I’m currently in the army and looking into leaving and joining the prison service. Just wondering if any of you could help me out, 7 years ago I got convicted of assault and had to do community service. Other than that I haven’t been in trouble. I was wondering if any one on here would know if that would bar me from becoming a prison officer? This is the job I really want to do and would hate a mistake in my past to stop me. Many thanks in advance.
