NYPD Psychological Disqualification Appeal Process

The following video explains the NYPD psychological disqualification appeal process, and the steps you must take in order to succeed.

It outlines the NYPD psychological Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) steps, followed by what you should do if you receive a Notice for a second (2nd) interview. It further explains what you must do if you receive a Notice of Disqualification (NOD), which can be appealed to the NYC Civil Service Commission.

When you are disqualified, that disqualification will not be reversed unless you take action. I have been assisting disqualified NYPD, FDNY, DSNY and NYC DOC candidates for many years. Each appeal is different, just as your history of school, work and personal relationships are different.

As a civil service disqualification appeals attorney with more than 18 years of experience, I have extensive knowledge on how to appeal a NYPD Disqualification. Over the years I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.

What to Do if You Receive a NYPD Disqualification

We are here to assist you if you receive a NYPD Disqualification

Feel free to call 516-248-0040 or email me atkevin@sheerinlaw.com.

There is a two step appeal process:

The first step in the appeal process is to appeal to the NYPD, who will review the appeal package you submitted. In the case of psychological disqualifications you may get a second psychological interview. If you receive a second psychological interview it is best to prepare with an expert. The main issues that will come up in the second psychological interview are obvious.

The next step in the appeal process is a Notice of Disqualification (NOD) which is appealed to the NYC Civil Service Commission. The Commission holds hearings to determine if your disqualification was improper.

When you are disqualified, that disqualification will not be reversed unless you take action. I have been assisting disqualified NYPD, FDNY, DSNY and NYC DOC candidates for many years. Each appeal is different, just as your history of school, work and personal relationships are different.

How to Prevent NYPD Psychological Disqualification

If your goal is to become a police officer, you must do a considerable amount of work before completing any forms, meeting with any investigator or attending any psychological evaluation.

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

You must also be ready to explain your employment history in great detail, including, but not limited to, place of employment, job title, start date and end date for each of your jobs, as well as any written disciplinary reports that may appear in your personnel file. If you were fired from a job and someone contacts you asking for an explanation, 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 upfront because when the NYPD gets your Social Security lifetime history they will see exactly what jobs you had, and ask you to explain why you were let go from certain jobs.

If you have previously, or are now caring for a family member, make sure you have all of these 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 any and all household chores, including food shopping, pharmacy trips etc. that you did while caring for them.

Another 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 this document. When you get it, review it carefully, so you know each and every violation you ever received, and make sure you are prepared to talk about whatever occurred that caused you to get the violation so you are ready to offer an acceptable explanation.

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

You will run into problems if you appear before the investigator with an incomplete application, vague references and/or inaccurate information.

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 holds true 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 you have already completed. If there are any inaccuracies, or the forms you provided have any conflicting information, you will be thoroughly questioned about it. Be sure to gather all of the facts before you begin the police officer application process.

BE CAREFUL when hiring a Psychologist to help with your appeal…

Part of the appeal process for psychological disqualification is finding a psychologist who will help you by making the strongest arguments for your candidacy. If the psychologist is unable or unwilling to look at your good points, strengths, adversities you’ve overcome, accomplishments, perseverance over hardships, and persistence in improving despite any difficulties or disabilities you may have had, then you should look for a different psychologist. The psychologist you hire SHOULD BE ON YOUR SIDE, advocating for you. Before you choose a psychologist to assist you with your disqualification appeal, ensure that you have an agreement with them, that if they don’t believe you are qualified, they will let you know beforehand, and they will not forward their report to any hiring agency, such as the NYPD, stating that you are psychologically unsuitable.

Beware of psychologists who charge a very low fee, tell you they will help you and then do a superficial interview, as they may simply use the NYPD’s testing to confirm that you are unsuitable, and then send a report to the NYPD stating that you are unsuitable, without ever telling you. If this happens, not only did they not help you, but they have destroyed any chance you had of ever becoming a NYPD officer.

You should make a clear agreement with any psychologist you hire that they will discuss their findings with you BEFORE sending any report to the NYPD.

The psychologist you are considering MUST understand that they are supposed to be advocating for you, and if they don’t believe you are suitable, then they should let you know that they cannot support your candidacy, AND FURTHER AGREE that they will not forward any report to the NYPD if they come to such a conclusion.

If this does happen, at least you will have an opportunity to find someone else that is willing to help you and support your appeal.
