The Realities of NYPD Candidate Disqualifications…
The following stories are from Applicants who faced disqualifications during the NYPD application process, but successfully appealed and ultimately overcame the odds:
April, 2023: “Going through a NOPD or DQ is a really stressful and daunting process. When it came time to go before the NYC Civil Service Commission, I felt confident having Mr. Sheerin represent me. My DQ was ultimately reversed.” – Taylor S
February, 2023: “…I hired Kevin back in 2020 to appeal my NOPD… and it was once again denied. Kevin told me if I ever did the process again to call him. I told him I probably won’t…, but if anything I’ll call. Jump forward to 2022 and there I am in the process again. To my surprise Kevin never attempted to make money from me but rather reviewed my last NOPD and prepared me for my upcoming interview. I believe it’s with his words of wisdom and guidance that I was successful. His advice was important and yet simple that I was probably too arrogant to see. In the end it worked out for me by the guidance of Kevin and I thank him so much for keeping in contact with me even though he wasn’t seeking money, but rather to make sure I was able to join the NYPD.” – Aleem H.
January, 2023: “I recently applied to become a police officer for the New York Police Department. After going through the process, I was scheduled for my first psychological interview. I received an email that I was disqualified. I hired Kevin right away when I received the rejection letter. I knew this could impact any future law enforcement hiring. He guided me through the general appeal process [and] figured out what likely caused the disqualification. Because of him and his staff’s experience I got a second psychological test opportunity. I passed and will be starting the academy. The appeal process has timelines and requirements that require an expert’s assistance and your willingness to follow their advice. The process takes a few months. I had to retake tests that I passed like the physical due to time lapse, but it was worth it, and so was hiring Kevin. He is your best chance at having a timely and strong appeal if you contact him right after the disqualification.” – Jason W.
