How to avoid an NYPD Character Disqualification

If you have been arrested you must check that you have been arrested on your APD5. Frequently, candidates give the excuse that someone told me my arrest was sealed. This will not work. If you have been arrested you must state you were arrested and when you were arrested no matter what the disposition in your court case.

If you were suspended in school you would have to say you were suspended in school. Your investigator and psychologist will ask for authorizations to find about school discipline and when they get reports from your SUNY school or another college that you were suspended you will be disqualified and most likely will be unable to have a successful appeal.

If you were terminated from a job you should say you were because when the NYPD gets your Social Security lifetime history they will see what jobs you have had and you have to explain why you were let go from certain jobs.

Unfortunately, if you don’t reveal these things you will get disqualified and will not be able to explain them away.

If you receive a NYPD NOPD for character disqualification I offer a free consultation in my office in Mineola.

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.
