What are the minimum requirements for eligibility as a Special Conservator of the Peace?

You must be a minimum of 18 years of age; a United States citizen or legal resident alien of the United States; and successfully complete all application requirements for registration as a special conservator of the peace, to include a background investigation, which must be completed by a law enforcement agency within the Commonwealth of Virginia. The background investigation is separate and distinct from the criminal history check, which only shows your arrest and conviction history.
