SHOULD I APPEAL OR WITHDRAW FROM AN NYPD NOTICE OF PROPOSED DISQUALIFICATION (NOPD)

Frequently the question arises should I take action and file an appeal or withdraw from a disqualification.

The answer lies in the circumstances and facts involved in your disqualification. There may be occasions when more time between incidents that caused you to be disqualified is a good idea and you may wish to withdraw and try again later.

There are very few benefits to withdrawing if your ultimate goal is to be an NYPD Police Officer. The withdrawal letter states that the next time you apply for the job the disqualification file will be used in determining your suitability.

Accordingly, you may wish to proceed with the disqualification appeal if your ultimate goal is to be appointed to that job.

NYPD Psych NOPD 2nd Interview

If you receive a Psychological Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) from the NYPD you would have 30 days to decide whether you would like to appeal.

If you do not take action most likely this disqualification would affect your chances to be hired by other law enforcement agencies.

The good news is that the NYPD has begun a second psychological interview or an NOPD interview for some candidates that choose to appeal.

This second interview occurs at a different location with a different psychologist from the first NYPD doctor that interviewed you. Based on the initial doctor interview and your expert or MHP – mental health professional’s report this interview with the different NYPD psychologist has been leading to some success of people getting their Psychological Disqualification reversed before having to appeal to the Civil Service Commission. This is good news for candidates as you may succeed by appealing your original NOPD disqualification.

NYPD psych disqualification tips for the oral psych interview

What are the best tips for doing well on an NYPD Oral Psychological Interview?

  1.  Cooperate by arriving on time and properly dressed.
  2. Show respect for the psychologist by addressing them as “Doctor” not Chief, Boss, Pal or Buddy which will get you disqualified for showing disrespect during an interview.
  3. Realize that the interview can be aggressive and your answers will be challenged.  The psychologist may loop back and repeat prior questions to ensure you are being consistent in your answers.
  4. Be forthcoming because deceptive answers can be more damaging than revealing answers that you think are problematic.
  5. At the end of interview you will be asked to provide authorizations for your school, medical and other records and if those documents contain information contradicting your answers you can expect a bad result.
