In order to become a NYPD Police Officer you must accurately disclose all of the facts regarding your past. You must obtain your Certificates of Disposition for any arrests or summonses you may have received, along with your Lifetime Abstract from New York State Department of Motor Vehicles before you complete your Applicant Processing forms.
DO NOT GUESS ABOUT ANY OF YOUR RECORDS! If you guess about arrests, moving violations or summonses you may have had, you will receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) stating that you are disqualified for “Omission of Pertinent Facts.”
The NYPD and other hiring agencies such as NYC Department of Correction or FDNY have access to all of your information, and when you submit an incomplete and/or inaccurate form, they will compare it against their computer printouts and disqualify you. Failure to completely and/or accurately record any of this information on your APD5 will not be excused by the hiring agency, and you will receive a disqualification notice with OMISSION OF PERTINENT FACTS checked off.
