That term refers to "unwilling to prosecute" - ie dismissed, dropped.
The agency is generally more involved with crimes involving moral turpitude (ie theft, fraud) than with other crimes. They have an eliminator that will review the application and the background check to determine if the person will be a good fit. The more time that passes between the arrest and the application (with no further incidents) the higher likilihood of acceptance.
These are the automatic disqualifications - notice it says conviction, not arrest:
No felony convictions
• No misdemeanor convictions involving moral turpitude
• No marijuana use in the last three years
• No other illegal controlled substance use or prescription drug abuse in the past seven years
• Never sold, delivered, grown, or manufactured any controlled substance
• Must not have pled guilty or nolo contendere to, or have been convicted of “Fleeing” or “Attempting to Elude” a police officer as defined in Florida State Statute
• Must not have pled guilty or nolo contendere to, or have been convicted of “Driving under the Influence,” as defined in Florida State Statute within the past seven years
• Must not have accumulated more than 12 points on a driver's license within the past 18 months, or have a driving record that demonstrates repeated offenses or flagrant disregard for traffic laws
• No tattoos on face, neck or past the fold of the elbow
An expungement removes the charge from public viewing, but not from law enforcement.
