NYPD Psychological Disqualification – 2nd Interview

There has been an increase in NYPD Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) emails going out to candidates. On a good note, if you receive one of these emails the success rate following second interviews has increased recently at the NYPD Psych Services Units located in Lefrak City in Queens, as well as the alternate location in Brooklyn.

You need to file a Disqualification Appeal in order to get this opportunity. When you receive the email, it will state that you have 30 days to appeal.

I offer free phone and ZOOM consultations for those who have questions about the appeal process and their chances based upon their history and the original psychological interview with the NYPD psychologist. If you do not appeal, your chances of winning an appeal later on in your life after another examination are greatly reduced.

The fact that there is an appeal process shows that hiring agencies can be wrong in judging character and psychological suitability of candidate. The appeal process also shows that a second interview with a senior or reviewing psychologist can find that the reason and/or rationale cited by the original interviewing NYPD psychologist was misplaced or wrong.

Also a reviewing NYPD psychologist can find that the testing scores on instruments such as the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) and the California Psychological Inventory (CPI) have been misapplied or misused by the interviewing psychologist.

NYPD Psychological Disqualification Appeal

NYPD Psychological Disqualification Appeal

18 years ago I helped a NYPD Police Officer candidate with their disqualification and won the very first appeal I ever had before the New York City Civil Service Commission. The candidate had made some poor decisions in life by using drugs during high school and being issued a summons for making graffiti.  Since that time I have helped many disqualified candidates win their appeals for various civil service jobs.

Part of the success I’ve had is working with candidates by telling the story of their life, their background and their issues to prove their psychological suitability or ability to perform the job despite some imperfection or issue.

It is so important to get the facts before you act. In order to get the facts, a client needs to be interviewed for a thorough, complete and accurate report of anything that forms the rationale for the hiring agency’s decision to disqualify them. In addition, there is document review, which requires an in depth interview and a careful reading of all information that constitutes the disqualification decision.

Understanding the appeal process is also important. Knowing what arguments will be compelling and decisive provides the best value to the client to assure the best chances of success.

One of my greatest rewards is hearing from a client that they have been successful.

Fortunately for candidates, the NYPD Psychological Disqualification appeal process lately has resulted in more reversals after a second interview at 1 Lefrak City Plaza in East Elmhurst, Queens. Preparation with disqualified clients has lead to increased percentages of reversals after the second interview. Tips and tactics and how to avoid the traps that could cause you problems are the main focus of the preparation.

It has been my pleasure over the years to assist disqualified candidates to open up and explain what has happened, and to take a deep dive into their past to understand not only the negative things but, also the positive things that make them a good candidate. This includes: 1) military veterans, including those who served in combat; 2) people who have overcome adversity in their life, including those with difficult upbringings and/or limited opportunities; 3) people who have struggled with learning disabilities, individual education plans (IEPs), Special Education, Resource Room, Dyslexia and Attention Deficit Disorder; and, 4) those who have used Attention medicines or have other challenges.

I believe you will be satisfied with your efforts to successfully challenge your NYPD Psychological Disqualification. This is a process that is already in place and there is no harm in filing an appeal. If you have a strong interest in law enforcement or the NYPD in particular, you will need to challenge the disqualification. Over the years, all of these successful challenges have proven that not every disqualification is correct.

If you receive a NOPD, YOU MUST ACT! Your disqualification will become final unless you appeal.

I would be happy to speak with you to discuss your disqualification.

NYPD Psych NOPD 2nd Interview

If you receive a Psychological Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) from the NYPD, you have 30 days to decide whether or not you would like to appeal.

If you do not take action, this disqualification will most likely affect your chances of being hired by other law enforcement agencies.

The good news is that the NYPD has begun a second psychological interview or a NOPD interview for some candidates that choose to appeal.

This second interview occurs at a different location and with a different psychologist from the first NYPD doctor that interviewed you. Based on the initial doctor’s interview and your expert or MHP – mental health professional’s report, this interview with a different NYPD psychologist has led to many people successfully getting their Psychological Disqualification reversed before having to appeal to the Civil Service Commission. This is very good news for candidates, as you may succeed by appealing your original NOPD disqualification.

YOU MUST APPEAL NYPD PSYCH NOPD OR YOUR CASE WILL BE DISMISSED LATER

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

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

The Psychological Services 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 LICENSED 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 advise 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.

If you have any questions, and you would like to schedule a free consultation at my Mineola office, please do not hesitate to contact me at 516 248 0040.
