If an arrest record is sealed, does it have to be disclosed (integrity aside) on a law enforcement hiring application? Will local police departments or other government agencies besides the FBI still have access to arrest record? Does the arrest seal work best for non-government agencies conducting basic background checks?
If your arrest record in Arizona is sealed, it is often still in your best interest to disclose the case on a law enforcement hiring application.  You should make it clear that you were "cleared" by the court and the records have been sealed pursuant to ARS 13-4051. Legally, it may not be necessary to reveal it, a careful reading of the application instructions is the best way to determine which cases need to be disclosed. But if a sealing is granted, it is a great indicator that you did not commit the offense charged and the arrest should not affect your chances of gaining employment. However, failing to include requested information would be a bar to employment. An Arizona sealing is a great relief, prohibiting the court and law enforcement agencies from disclosing the case, but law enforcement agencies do not destroy the records and therefore it is possible they will have knowledge of the original arrest so being upfront regarding it is often the best approach.
