NYPD Candidate Medical Assessment

The NYPD Candidate Medical Assessment consists of a Vision Exam, Blood Pressure Test, Electrocardiogram (a/k/a an “EKG”) and the Physical Exam.

As a Candidate, your vision must be 20/30 or better (corrected), and at least 20/100 or better (uncorrected), with each eye tested separately. If you wear corrective lenses, you must bring your glasses or contact lenses to the examination. You will also be evaluated for Color vision, and using a color deficiency corrective device of any type is not permitted.

As a Candidate, you will also be tested for your ability to hear tones of varying decibels across a range of frequencies, with each ear tested separately. In certain circumstances, the use of a hearing aid device to achieve these standards is permitted, provided they are self-contained and fit within (auricular), behind or over (post-auricular) the ear.

All Candidates will have their blood pressure checked, to confirm it is no greater than 140/90, with a pulse of fewer than 100 beats per minute. To help achieve these results, Candidates should refrain from using any products containing caffeine and/or other stimulants at least 24 hours prior to their medical exam.

As stated above, all Candidates will have an EKG performed to confirm there are no cardiac abnormalities.

Candidates are also required to complete a Medical Questionnaire which details their medical history. This Medical Questionnaire, in conjunction with the results from the above tests, will be used by the NYPD as a guide when questioning the Candidate, as well as during the physical examine by the NYPD Police Department doctor or physician assistant.

NYPD Hiring Process

Once you have taken the exam, the NYC Department for Citywide Administration Services (DCAS) will generate your “list number”. List numbers are generated only to Candidates who pass the exam and are generated by exam score (meaning the higher your score, the lower your list number will be).

After you pass the exam, the NYPD’s Candidate Assessment Division will email you an invitation to create a NYPD Candidate Portal account. Through this Portal, you will required to complete the Personal History Questionnaire, as this is where your assessment process starts. During this time you will be asked to prepare and upload additional documents through the Portal (which you can find at NYPD Candidate Portal (nypdonline.org)

At your first interview you will be required to bring and/or upload certain documentation. A list of the items you will be required to upload and/or bring will be listed on your NYPD Candidate Portal after you complete your Personal History Questionnaire.

You can expect the hiring process to take an average of 6 months to 1 year to be hired. It rare cases the process can take as little as 2 months or as long as 4 years depending upon each candidate’s situation. Your exam is valid for four years from the date your list number is established.

Advice for NYPD Police Officer Candidates

When going through the NYPD hiring process it is important for Candidates to be engaged and respond promptly throughout the process. The quicker a Candidate responds back to their investigator, fills out their paperwork and schedules their appointments, the faster the process will go.

Candidates should also know that there are 3 things that will immediately disqualify them from becoming a Police Officer; (1) A felony conviction; (2) A domestic violence misdemeanor conviction; and/or, (3) A dishonorable discharge from the military.

The best advice for Candidates going through the process is to ALWAYS tell the truth. Regardless of how much you may want to sugarcoat your past, it is always better to be truthful with the investigator. Lying about your background can only hurt you in the end, since the NYPD will review your history in its totality anyway. There is a chance you may not be disqualified for something you were truthful about, but there is a high probability you will be disqualified for lying or intentionally omitting important facts about yourself and/or your history.
