Will my psychiatric commitment show on a background check for a law enforcement career?

When I was about 18 I had a psychiatric commitment ordered on me because my mom and our family friend who happens to be a therapist saw a post on my myspace and thought I was suicidal - I was not, it was just a stupid emo phase I went through to be in with the cool crowd.

Will this commitment show up in a background check for employment with state police? I have called the court that would have the record of my commitment but they said they destroy records after 3 years - my incident happened almost 9 years ago, so they have no record of it at all at the court system. I am worried that the police may have it in their contact records in their computers. Any suggestions? I figure I should just go ahead and apply, and if they catch my bluff I'll just say *oops* sorry. If they don't, then well, I will proudly serve my community!  Smiley

If the background check includes investigators going out and talking randomly to people that knew you, then it might be found out. Sad
  

What do we call it when every employee of the Agency's Office of Security
and Office of Personnel drowns in the Potomac?   A great beginning!
