MUST APPEAL NYPD PSYCH NOPD OR HAVE CASE DISMISSED LATER

There is some confusion among candidates about whether they must appeal and NYPD psych NOPD. (Notice of Proposed Disqualification)

To clarify: you must appeal an NYPD NOPD psychological disqualification at the NOPD stage or your appeal will be dismissed.

The Psychological Assessment section file may only be reviewed by a licensed health care professional. Your only opportunity to have your Psychological Services Assessment section file reviewed during this administrative process will be at this time.

IF YOU DO NOT SUBMIT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION BY THESE DEADLINES, THIS PRELIMINARY DETERMINATION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL UNSUITABILITY WILL BECOME FINAL. YOU WILL NOT HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE YOUR FILE REVIEWED BY A LICENCED HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL DURING THIS ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESS AND YOU WILL RECEIVE NOTIFICATION THAT YOU HAVE BEEN DISQUALIFIED.

If you try to begin your appeal, as many people would revise you at the NOD stage the NYPD Legal Bureau will move to dismiss your appeal for failing to exhaust your administrative remedies and failing to have your psychological file sent to your Mental Health Professional (MHP) at the NOPD stage. Your appeal may be dismissed.

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.
