From what you wrote, I would think you would still be able to get hired. Having bad credit can definitely hurt your chances of getting a police officer job. However, how bad your credit is and why your credit is bad will likely be considered. Also, how much debt you have and what kind of debt can be taken into account. Due what you can to improve your credit and reduce your debt. All else being equal, you do want your resume to reflect responsibility and some stability, but employers realize that changing jobs is often necessary. Hopefully you didn't get fired, quit without notice, or leave on bad terms with your past employers. That can also hurt your chances of getting hired. It is great that you are working toward a college degree. Finish your degree, and do whatever else you can to make yourself the best candidate that you can.
