NYPD Psychological Appeal – 1 Chance to Choose an Expert & Obtain NYPD Records

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

With more than 18 years of experience as a NYPD disqualification appeals lawyer I have helped many disqualified candidates who have received either a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) or a final Notice of Disqualification (NOD) for psychological reasons from the NYPD.

The NOPD letter provides the candidate with an opportunity to select and hire their own psychological expert and have the NYPD psychological file sent to that expert for review and preparation of a rebuttal report. However, in order for the NYPD psychological file to be released, the disqualified candidate MUST first respond to the NOPD.

It is crucial, as a disqualified candidate, that you select a psychologist familiar with the appeals process. ONCE YOU SELECT AN EXPERT TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR APPEAL YOU WILL MOST LIKELY BE UNABLE TO SWITCH EXPERTS LATER.

Also, selecting a psychologist that the candidate formerly had counselling session with is a poor choice.

I have extensive experience regarding how to appeal a NYPD Disqualification. Over the years I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.

NYPD Psychological Disqualification Appeal Process

Candidates who fail to provide requested documentation during the NYPD application process will have their file marked discontinued.  Understand, there is no appeal from a discontinued status.

Candidates who receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) have thirty (30) days to appeal their disqualification.

Is it Worth Appealing a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD)?

It can’t get any worse…

If you are currently disqualified, it can only get better. You have two chances to succeed. First, you could win at a re-interview at the NYPD Psych Disqualification Notice of Proposed Disqualification phase. It is extremely important that you have knowledgeable, experienced mental health professionals and attorneys to help, guide and prepare you for any re-interview.

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

NYPD Psychological Disqualification – 2nd interview

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

The NYPD re-interviews candidates who receive NYPD psychological disqualifications.  This re-interview most often occurs at NYPD Psychological Services in East Elmhurst.

The only way to get a re-interview is by appealing your NYPD psychological NOPD within 30 days.

If your goal is to become a police officer, you must do considerable homework before filling out any forms, meeting with any investigator or attending any psychological evaluation.

Below is a video describing the NYPD disqualification appeal process. Please call 516-248-3494 to schedule a free consultation to discuss your history, the oral interview and the 3 step appeal process.  You can also email me at kevin@sheerinlaw.com.

Applicant Advice to Prevent NYPD Disqualification

If your goal is to become a police officer, you must do considerable homework before filling out any forms, meeting with any investigator or attending any psychological evaluation.

You must research your school records, obtain your school transcript, and be ready to discuss any disciplinary history, as well as any withdrawals and/or failed classes. You must also know the dates and semesters you attended both high school and college.

You should also be able to describe all of your employment history in detail, with specifics regarding each job and job title. You must also know the start date and end date for each job, as well as any written disciplinary reports that appear in your personnel file. If you were fired from a job and someone contacts you asking for an explanation, you will not be able to brush it off by saying it was because you were written up for a lateness or some other infraction. You must be able to clearly present the facts regarding everything that occurred throughout your employment, including periods of unemployment (if any). If you were terminated from a job, you should disclose your termination because when the NYPD gets your Social Security lifetime history they will see exactly what jobs you have had, and will ask you to explain why you were let go from certain jobs.

If you have previously, or are now caring for a family member, you should have all of the dates and times clearly noted, as well as a list of the doctors your family member needed to see while under your care. You should also create a list of all of the household chores, including food shopping, trips to the pharmacy etc. that you did while caring for them.

The next most important thing you should do is get your LIFETIME driver’s abstract from the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles. Go to the DMV website for instructions on how to do this and give yourself a couple of weeks to receive the document. When you get it, you should review it carefully, so you know each and every violation you ever received. You must also make sure you are prepared to talk about what occurred that caused you to get the violation and be able to offer an explanation.

If your driver’s license was suspended or revoked you should act quickly to get the matter cleared up.

Problems will occur if a candidate appears before their investigator with an incomplete application booklet, vague references, no specifics and/or inaccurate or incomplete information.

Because you are expected to explain, in detail, the facts of your life, responses such as “I forgot”, “I don’t know”, “I don’t remember” or “those records do not exist” are generally not accepted.

A thorough, complete and accurate application package with specific dates, times and explanations will go a long way towards helping you get hired.

The same goes for the psychological interview. Before the psychological interview, you will be asked to fill out a form. The information on that form must correspond with all of the prior forms that you have already filled out. If there are any inaccuracies, or the forms you provided have any conflicting information on them, you will be thoroughly questioned about what is going on. Be sure to gather all of the facts before you begin the police officer application process.
