Is it worth appealing a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD)?

It’s not going to get any worse you are currently disqualified- it can only get better. You have two chances to succeed: you could win at a reinterview at the NOPD Notice of Proposed Disqualification phase. It is always important to have all good mental health professionals and attorneys to help and guide you and prepare you for any re-interview.

If you are unsuccessful you have an appeal to the New York City Civil Service Commission which holds hearings and may rule that you are disqualification was improper. This is a second chance to win. Naysayers and critics can claim that no one ever wins. This is not true. Recently candidates have had their disqualification reversed at an NOPD re-interview. Additionally, candidates have their disqualifications reversed after hearings at the Civil Service Commission. Your disqualification will not be reversed if you do not take action.

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.
