When appealing a NYPD character disqualification what are the factors considered?
Frequency of violations or infractions, such as arrests, moving violations or other incidents such as school discipline or work discipline. If you were suspended or expelled from school this would work against your NYPD Police Officer application. Also if you were late or disciplined at your job this would be a problem in your application. If you were terminated from one or more jobs without a good explanation this also would be something you would have to explain.
Severity of violations or infractions. If you were arrested and charged with crimes that are felonies or misdemeanors that would be something you would have to explain on appeal. If the disposition or final outcome of your case was dismissal or a lesser charge that could help you in your appeal.
The recency of your last violation or infraction is also important to your NYPD character appeal. If it has been a decade or even five years since your last infraction that could help you by showing the New York City Civil Service Commission that you have changed your behavior for the better.
The three categories do not stand alone – they are considered together in your appeal.
