The City of Grapevine performs background checks on those individuals applying for safety or security sensitive positions as well as other individuals who work with the public. While a criminal conviction will not automatically disqualify you, failure to honestly answer questions about criminal convictions constitutes falsification of an application and will automatically disqualify you from consideration by the City of Grapevine now and in the future. Therefore, you need to be sure you honestly and thoroughly complete all questions about criminal convictions.
