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 us at 516-248-0040 or email me at kevin@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 submit. 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 would be a Notice of Disqualification (NOD) which would be 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 choose to take action. I have been assisting disqualified NYPD, FDNY, DSNY, 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.

If you have questions about your NYPD psychological disqualification and you would like to schedule a free consultation, please feel free to contact me at 516 248 0040.

NYPD Psychological Disqualification Process – What to Expect

What should you expect from the NYPD psychological testing process?

The NYPD will give you a written exam consisting of hundreds of questions.  After the exam is scored you will be called to meet with a NYPD Psychological staff member for an oral psychological interview.

You may be asked questions about your answers given on the written exam and you will be asked to explain your answers.

You will also be asked questions about your education, work, driving and arrest history (if any). You may also be asked about your history with Psychotherapy or any medicines you may have taken in the past, as well as your family history, personal relationships and other relevant topics.

You will be expected to explain any issues that may arise in connection with any of the above topic areas.

In addition, you will have to provide authorizations so the NYPD Psychologist can get documentation from your schools or jobs, and you MUST provide these authorizations in order to complete the process.

You may receive notice that you have been placed on psychological review.  This review can take some time as other members of the NYPD team review your file.

Thereafter, you may receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification or NOPD stating that you have 30 days to appeal.

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.

Chances of Reversing a NYPD Psychological Disqualification

If you are currently disqualified, you have two chances to succeed. Your first chance may occur if you end up having a positive outcome after a re-interview at the NYPD Psychological Disqualification NOPD phase. It is extremely important that you have a knowledgeable, experienced attorney and seasoned mental health professionals to help, guide and prepare you for any re-interview.

If you are unsuccessful, you do have a second chance to win with an appeal to the New York City – Civil Service Commission, who holds hearings and could rule that your disqualification was improper. Candidates have had their NYPD Psychological 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 unless you take action.

Your Social Media Matters…

In a world that revolves around technology, you must be aware of EVERYTHING you say, do or post on social media. Before putting anything out there, you should ask yourself if you are fine with ANYONE seeing and/or reading your content.

NYPD Psychological Disqualification Appeal and ADHD

NYPD Psychological Disqualification Appeal and ADHD

If you had ADHD during your school years it is possible you will receive an NYPD psychological disqualification.  Many candidates when they were younger were diagnosed with ADHD Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. In school they may have received special education; tutoring; resource room and have been prescribed medicines by doctors.

Over time as young person’s brain matures and develops often ADHD attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is left behind. With this change often the medicines become a thing of the past. During the course of the application candidates reveal through their school records that they were diagnosed with ADHD and possibly received medicine.

Then the question becomes if I am disqualified for this diagnosis and condition should I appeal? Appeals can be successful if the ADHD is a thing of the past. Also, if the candidate has not taken medicine for a significant period of time. Candidates can prove that they are high-performing by showing the pattern that their school education through college or university and that they have successfully performed steady, satisfactory work. I previously discussed the rights of NYPD candidates receiving disqualifications.

If you would like the opportunity to have your disqualification reversed, please feel free to call 516-248-0040 or email me at kevin@sheerinlaw.com to discuss your NYPD Psychological Review and/or NYPD NOPD Psychological Disqualification appeal.
