IMPORTANT INFORMATION
TCOLE Personal History
Statement Instructions
The attached Personal History Statement (PHS) is intended as a sample of what TCOLE considers to
be the minimum information necessary to meet the required background investigation (BI) for any law
enforcement licensee appointed to an agency, as defined under TCOLE Rule 211.1(a)(8).
Agency administrators may add additional information or agency identifiers without deletion or
elimination of any information in this document. They may also decide at which stage in the pre-
appointment process the PHS/BI will be completed as long as it is done before the applicant is
appointed. The objective is to help the agency’s chief administrator to make an informed decision
based on factual and verifiable information.
The PHS/BI is an auditable document which must be retained along with all other required TCOLE
appointment documents through the licensee’s employment and five (5) years after he or she leaves
the agency. For training academies the record must be retained for five (5) years from the last date
at the academy.

Instructions to the Applicant
Before you begin to fill out this personal history statement, please ensure that you meet the following requirements. You
must meet all five of these requirements to qualify for licensure as a peace officer, jailer or telecommunicator in Texas.
I am a citizen of the United States of America.
I have earned a high school diploma, a GED or an honorable discharge from the armed services of the United States
after at least two years active service.
I have never been convicted, plead guilty (nolo contendere), nor have I been on court-ordered community
service/probation or deferred adjudication for a Class A misdemeanor or a felony.
During the last ten (10) years, I have not been convicted, plead guilty (nolo contendere), been on community
service/probation or deferred adjudication for a Class B misdemeanor in this state, other state, or while serving in the
military.
I have never had a military court martial that resulted in a dishonorable or other discharge based on misconduct
which bars future military service.
DISQUALIFICATIONS
T
here are very few automatic
bases for rejection. Even issues of prior misconduct, employee terminations, and
arrests are usually not, in and of themselves, automatically disqualifying. However, deliberate misstatements or
omissions can and often will result in your application being rejected, regardless of the nature or reason for the
misstatements/omissions. In fact, the number one reason individuals “fail” background investigations is because
they deliberately withhold or misrepresent job-relevant information from their prospective employer.
This personal history statement is a governmental document. Be truthful, as there are criminal consequences for
lying on a governmental document.
O
nce you begin:
T
ype or neatly print, in ink, responses to all items and questions. If a question does not apply to you, write “N/A”
(not applicable) in the space provided for your response. If you cannot obtain or remember certain information,
indicate so in your response.
I
f you need additional space for your answers, attach additional sheets as needed. Be sure to indicate what
question number and page this refers to
Be as complete, honest and specific as possible in your responses.
Disclosure of Medically Related Information
I
n accordance with the U.S. Americans with Disabilities Act, at this stage of the hiring process applicants are not
expected or required to reveal any medical or other disability-related information about themselves in response to
questions on this form, or to any other inquiry made prior to receiving a conditional offer of employment.
