NYPD disqualification letter
Disqualification for High Blood Pressure Overturned
Nassau County Police Officer candidate failed to meet the Municipal Police Training Council standard for blood pressure and was disqualified in August 2013. The candidate suffered from White Coats Syndrome which is an elevated blood pressure in a clinical setting. The candidate had no history of hypertension with his primary physician. The Nassau County Civil Service Commission agreed to recheck the candidate’s blood pressure and found it to be within the MPTC standards. Candidate’s disqualification was overturned in October 2013.
