How to Become a NYPD Police Officer

Steps to Becoming a NYPD Officer

  1. Meet the minimum qualifications for prospective officers.
  2. Take the New York City civil service exam.
  3. Complete an online application.
  4. Pass the medical exam.
  5. Complete the personal character assessment.
  6. Complete oral and written psychological assessments.
  7. Pass the physical abilities test.
  8. Appear for a pre-hire interview.

Before applying to become an officer with the NYPD, candidates who meet the hiring prerequisites must first take the written civil service exam.

Prospective recruits who perform well throughout these stages will be conditionally hired and invited to proceed to the final step, attending the New York City Police Academy.

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.
