Default personnel file, record retention period removing documents

I was a police officer for 8 years. I left because of a back injury. Now 8 years later I applied at another police department. I failed the background because of two written correctives and 3 comp cases . All legitimate chasing bad guys.

Question is can I legally have Any negative documents removed after a certain time, for example written correctives and injuries on the job? Should they be destroyed after a certain period of time or at my request. These were almost a decade ago and still haunting me.

Thanks, Scott

I wish to inform you that your employment record during the period you served as a police officer cannot be destroyed. The period for which records will be maintained depends upon the government regulation regarding it employees. You can obtain a copy of your employment file and if any wrong detail is mentioned then you may correct the details.

No. It's not like a criminal act that could possibly be expunged. Your work records remain for as long as the employer chooses to retain them.

Hey Scott,

You can't remove any document.
