It’s my dream to work in the police, Ive always wanted to be a detective however I may have a problem that prevents me from achieving this. I think I have OCD ( pure o) and I want to get help. I suffer from these reoccurring thoughts that cripple me and prevent me from doing things. I don’t suffer from visible compulsions however it seems to be just my thoughts which then give me anxiety. I do want to go to the doctors and get help however I’m scared that a formal diagnosis will hinder my job prospects. Can the police access my medical records?? Please help x

You need to speak to your GP. Diagnosis or not, you'll still be experiencing the same symptoms and problems which could be noticed by people and impact on your job performance. Talk to your GP, get the help you need and then you'll have access to professionals in this area who can answer your questions regarding careers. Best of luck.
