NYPD Character Disqualification Factors

This video will help you understand the NYPD Character Disqualification Factors. What can offset background disqualifications? NYPD Character disqualifications can be appealed after receipt of NOPD or NOD notifications.

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.

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.

CRUCIAL TO CHECK EMAIL INBOX FOR NOPD OR NOD FROM NYPD

Candidates may have an overflowing inbox with 25, 50 or 100 emails a day.  If you miss a Notice of Proposed Disqualification NOPD email for an NYPD psychological disqualification or a Notice of Disqualification NOD and you do not respond within 30 days your appeal may be dismissed.

Candidates may claim, “I never got it!” but evidence can be submitted with the day, date and time the email was sent.

The best advice is to check your email inbox or spam folder every day very carefully because failure to do so can prevent you getting appointed to the job after spending 40-50 hours in applicant processing.

Another tip may be to set up an email filter to have your email provider separate the emails into a separate folder.

Case dismissals are occurring more frequently and close attention is required to prevent bad results.

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.
