What can be expected in the NYPD psychological testing process?
The NYPD will give you a written exam consisting of hundreds of questions. After the examination is scored you will be called to meet with a NYPD Psychological staff member for an oral psychological interview.
You may be asked questions about your answers given on the written exam and you will be asked to explain your answers.
You will be asked questions about:
Arrest History (if any)
Psychotherapy or medicines taken
Family and Relationships
Other relevant topics
You will be asked to explain any issues that arise in the above topic areas.
You may be asked to provide authorizations for the Psychologist to get documents from your schools or jobs, and you will have to provide to them to complete the process. You may receive notice that you have been placed on psychological review. This review can take some time as other members of the NYPD team review your file.
Thereafter, you may receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification or NOPD stating that you have 30 days to appeal.
When you are disqualified, that disqualification will not be reversed unless you take action. I have been assisting disqualified NYPD, FDNY, DSNY and NYC DOC candidates for many years. Each appeal is different, just as your history of school, work and personal relationships are different.
As a civil service disqualification appeals attorney with more than 18 years of experience, I have extensive knowledge on how to appeal a NYPD Disqualification. Over the years I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.
