As far as I know, you cannot get anythign expunegd from your BOP. The only thing you can do is maybe seal it, but no department would hire you unless you sign a form that opens the record so they coudl see it. I think sealing a record is worse than just explaining the problem. Were you found not guilty or was case dismissed. In that case, technically you cannot be denied employment in a police department. I do backgrounds for our department and during our training we were told

"Police officers do not go around arresting people for no reason"
What I mean, is that there was enough for you to be arrested. I go to the individual department where the charge was from and request the arrest report. Good luck, but remember, honesty is the best policy.
