I have a summary offense against me for retail theft. can i still be a police officer?

I am currently a senior in college going for criminal justice with a concentration in law enforcement. Before my incident in January 2008, I wanted to go into criminal justice but was not 100 percent sure on what to do with it. That incident completely changed my life and made me want to become a police officer.... Will I have any trouble getting a Police Officer job?

Shoplifting charge as an adult? Hmmmm. It's iffy. It's one thing to do that as a minor but as an adult often bespeaks of inner trouble.
