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.

Can I become a NYPD Police Officer without a HS diploma?

All prospective NYPD recruits must have a high school diploma/GED, AND either 60 semester hours of college credit or two years of full-time experience in the United States Armed Forces.

Those who do not meet these guidelines may be interested in the NYPD’s Police Cadet Corps. This work-study program places cadet recruits in paid NYPD support assignments while providing tuition assistance to help candidates meet the college experience requirement.

NYPD Disqualification – Failing to Admit Minor Problems

One of the major pitfalls made by candidates is failing to admit very minor issues.

One example of a minor issue is doing poorly when you first enter college. When transitioning from high school to college, some candidates end up on academic probation. If you go to an oral psychological interview and deny poor performance in college, you will find yourself dealing with bigger problems then if you had just been honest. The interviewing psychologist already has your school transcript, so denying academic probation will only create a bigger problem causing you to be disqualified.

A better method is to get your transcript before the interview so you know exactly what you did and when you did it. If you did poorly in the beginning, or at some point during college, it is better to just say “I really should have studied harder and I regret not doing so”. Your admission is always better than denying responsibility, saying you don’t recall or saying that’s not what really happened.

There can be stressors including work, transportation problems, problems at home and other struggles. The denial of poor academic performance is really unnecessary and gets more people disqualified than you could imagine.

The Interviewing Psychologist has your college records in writing, so saying you don’t recall or denying your record, or lying about your GPA will only cause you to be disqualified.

Get the facts before your interview. Telling the truth and showing that you have remorse and have learned from your past struggles can only work in your favor.

NYPD Disqualification due to inconsistent statements

Candidates run into difficulty when they give inconsistent statements over the course of several written questionnaires and oral psychological evaluations.

For example, when applying for NYPD Cadet you may have said in response to a very common question: “Did you have a party for your 21st birthday, when it became legal for you to drink in a licensed premises?” You may write on a questionnaire yes I had a few beeers and and some shots of liquor. Three or four years later you may be interviewing for NYPD Police Officer title and say “I did not drink on my 21st birthday. The drinking itself will not get you disqualified – it would be the inconsistent answers and the perception that you are trying to deceive the interviewer. Word to the wise is keep those stories consistent because more often the act itself is not grounds for disqualification but the inconsistencies and the perceived deception will.

If you receive an NYPD notice of proposed disqualification please contact me at:
