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.

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.
