NYPD Psychological Appeals – One Chance to Appeal if you Fail the Psych Test

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

As a NYPD disqualification appeals lawyer with more than 19 years of experience, Kevin Sheerin has assisted many disqualified candidates who failed the NYPD Psych Test and received either a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) or a final Notice of Disqualification (NOD) from the NYPD.

In the NOPD letter, the disqualified candidate is given an opportunity to select a psychological expert and have the NYPD psychological file sent to that expert for review and  preparation of a rebuttal report.  If the candidate does not respond to the NOPD the NYPD psychological file will NOT be released.

It is crucial that the disqualified candidate select AN EXPERIENCED psychologist familiar with the appeals process to assist them. ONCE YOU SELECT A PSYCHOLOGICAL EXPERT TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR APPEAL, YOU ARE GENEREALLY NOT ABLE TO CHANGE YOUR CHOICE LATER.

It is understandable that Candidates can feel overwhelmed by this NYPD appeals process. However, Kevin Sheerin is a knowledgeable appeals attorneys with many years experience who can walk you through the process, assist you in seeking a psychological expert and help you make prudent choices along the way.

A candidate should also remember that selecting a psychologist they formerly had counseling sessions with is a poor choice.

If you receive a NOPD or NOD, please feel free to contact Kevin Sheerin at 516 248 0040 to discuss your options.

NYPD Disqualification – Failing to Admit Minor Problems

One of the major pitfalls made by candidates is failing to admit very minor issues.

One example of a minor issue is doing poorly when you first enter college. When transitioning from high school to college, some candidates end up on academic probation. If you go to an oral psychological interview and deny poor performance in college, you will find yourself dealing with bigger problems then if you had just been honest. The interviewing psychologist already has your school transcript, so denying academic probation will only create a bigger problem causing you to be disqualified.

A better method is to get your transcript before the interview so you know exactly what you did and when you did it. If you did poorly in the beginning, or at some point during college, it is better to just say “I really should have studied harder and I regret not doing so”. Your admission is always better than denying responsibility, saying you don’t recall or saying that’s not what really happened.

There can be stressors including work, transportation problems, problems at home and other struggles. The denial of poor academic performance is really unnecessary and gets more people disqualified than you could imagine.

The Interviewing Psychologist has your college records in writing, so saying you don’t recall or denying your record, or lying about your GPA will only cause you to be disqualified.

Get the facts before your interview. Telling the truth and showing that you have remorse and have learned from your past struggles can only work in your favor.

NYPD Disqualification due to inconsistent statements

The NYPD issues disqualifications to Candidates due to inconsistent statements. NYPD Candidates run into difficulty when they give inconsistent statements over the course of several written questionnaires and oral psychological evaluations.

For example, when applying for NYPD Cadet you may have said in response to a very common question: “Did you have a party for your 21st birthday, when it became legal for you to drink in a licensed premises?” You may write on a questionnaire yes I had a few beers and and some shots of liquor. Three or four years later you may be interviewing for NYPD Police Officer title and say “I did not drink on my 21st birthday. The drinking itself will not get you disqualified – it would be the inconsistent statements / answers and the perception that you are trying to deceive the interviewer. Word to the wise is keep those stories consistent because more often the act itself is not grounds for disqualification but the inconsistencies and the perceived deception will.

Please try not to have inconsistent statements during your evaluations.

If you receive an NYPD notice of proposed disqualification please contact me at:
