Factors that affect your NYPD Psychological Disqualification

If a candidate had an Individual Education Plan (IEP) in school, some NYPD psychologists will consider that a reason for disqualification. The NYPD psychologist will ask you to sign an authorization to get your school records. When the records are received they will review them and determine if the issues you had in school will effect your candidacy.

If a candidate took ADHD medicine while in school, this may also be considered as a reason for NYPD disqualification. Again, the NYPD psychologist will request an authorization to obtain your records from school, and review them to determine if you should be disqualified on that basis.

You can appeal your disqualification by getting an independent psychologist to help you. They will explain that what happened back in school is not your current condition or state. Often candidates have outgrown the need for medicines, or their condition has not followed them into adulthood.

Of course, if you do not take action, the disqualification will become final and will effect your ability to get any other civil service jobs.

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.

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.

Psychological Disqualification Appeals

If you were disqualified as a candidate for a law enforcement or other civil service position for psychological reasons, the first thing you should do is hire an experienced and qualified disqualification appeal lawyer, who thoroughly understands the appeal process and will examine your particular case to determine whether or not you have grounds for a  psychological disqualification appeal. In addition, you will need to hire a Mental Health Professional who will evaluate you and then negate any negative findings reported by the NYPD psychologist. The Law Offices of Kevin P. Sheerin can also assist you with this task, as Mr. Sheerin works with several psychologists who specialize in this area of forensic psychology.

There are many reasons why a candidate might be psychologically disqualified, including issues brought to light during the psychological evaluation process, such as arrest history, driving record, employment history, disciplinary issues in school, alcohol and/or drug or other substance misuse/abuse, interpersonal history, educational history, mental health history, prior psychological prescription drug use and psychological test results.
