NYPD Psych disqualification

Candidates for NYPD and Nassau County Police Department and other law enforcement agencies may not be aware that the oral psychological exam can be rough.  The examiner, most often a Psychologist, can use an aggressive questioning pattern to find out if the candidate can handle confrontation. Also, the psychologist may repeat previously asked questions to see if they are are going to be met with consistent answers.

The candidate may think to themselves that this is unfair and I’m not be treated properly.

The best thing you can do is go in with a good attitude, be prepared to be confronted during the interview and maintain your composure.

If you have questions about your disqualification and would like to schedule a free consultation at my Mineola office please do not hesitate to call me at 516 248 0040.

Can you get an attorney to help you with a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) from the NYPD?

Can you get an attorney to help you with a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) from the NYPD? The simple answer is YES.

The NYPD has recently started interviewing psychologically disqualified NYPD Police Officer candidates after they have received their NOPD and after they have a psychologist submit an expert report on their behalf.

Your chances of being successful increase substantially when you have an attorney prepare you for your upcoming NOPD interview. At times these interviews morph into interrogations and preparation from your attorney can assist you in handling harsh questioning.

No one can criticize you for speaking with someone prior to an oral psychological interview.

I would recommend hiring a civil service attorney from the first disqualification. Your attorney will prepare you, and help you get the best results in your appeal.

As a civil service appeals attorney with more than 17 years experience, I have helped many NYPD candidates win their appeals. 

If you have questions about your appeal and would like to schedule a free consultation at my Mineola office please do not hesitate to call me at 516 248 0040.

NYPD Disqualification – Get the facts before you complete your APD5

The best advice you can receive if you want to become a NYPD officer is to get your Certificates of Disposition for any arrests or summonses you may have received and your Lifetime Abstract from New York State Department of Motor Vehicles before your complete your Applicant Processing forms.

If you guess about any arrests you may have or moving violations or summonses you 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 this information and when you submit an incomplete or inaccurate form they will compare it to their computer printouts and disqualify you.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a free consultation at my Mineola office please do not hesitate to call me at 516 248 0040.

NYPD Psych disqualification NOPD interview

If you are psychologically disqualified from the NYPD Police Officer title you will receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification by email. You have thirty days to appeal this NOPD. You should hire an attorney and designate a pyschologist to help you file a rebuttal report which will be sent to the NYPD Candidate Assessment Division.

After your psychologist’s report is reviewed you may receive an email to come in for another interview with an NYPD psychologist. During the interview the psychologist will review the reports prepared by the original NYPD psychologist and your expert. You can expect to be questioned on any inconsistencies between the report and the problem areas found by the first NYPD doctor who chose to disqualify you.

This re-interview is an important step in the appeal process.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a free consultation at my Mineola office please do not hesitate to call me at 516 248 0040.

IT IS CRUCIAL TO CHECK YOUR EMAIL INBOX FOR NOPD OR NOD FROM NYPD

Candidates may have an overflowing inbox with 25, 50 or 100 emails a day.  If you miss a Notice of Proposed Disqualification NOPD email for a NYPD psychological disqualification or a Notice of Disqualification NOD and you do not respond within 30 days your appeal may be dismissed.

Candidates may claim, “I never got it!”, but evidence can be submitted with the day, date and time the email was sent.

The best advice is to check your email inbox or spam folder very carefully EVERY DAY. Failure to do so will prevent you from getting appointed to the job after spending 40-50 hours in applicant processing.

Another tip may be to set up an email filter to have your email provider separate the emails into a separate folder.

Case dismissals are occurring more frequently, so you must pay close attention in order to prevent negative results.

If you have questions or would like to schedule a free consultation at my Mineola office please do not hesitate to call me at 516 248 0040.
