Personal History Statement (PHS)

What information on the PHS can exclude me from the process?

Thoroughness and accuracy are required when completing the PHS. All information will be verified for truthfulness during the CVSA process. Deliberate omissions of information on the PHS may result in elimination from the selection process.

Examples of disqualifying information include: felony conviction, current firearm prohibition, currently on probation, or an active criminal warrant.

Examples of possible disqualifying factors that could be discovered during the background investigation and require evaluation on a case by case basis include: misdemeanor convictions, certain serious traffic convictions or patterns of traffic law violations, failure to appear, driver’s license suspensions, driving under the influence, failure to comply with legal obligations, negative employment history, and substance abuse.
