Use Caution Completing Assessment Forms during NYPD Application Process

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

If you would like to become a NYPD officer you must get your Certificates of Disposition for any arrests or summonses you may have received. You must also get 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 any 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 agency 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.

Click on the link below to hear further details regarding “Omission of Pertinent Facts”.

If you have questions about a Disqualification or Omission of Pertinent Facts please call me at 516 248 0040.
