NYPD Psych disqualification

Candidates for NYPD and Nassau County Police Department and other law enforcement agencies may not be aware that the oral psychological exam can be rough.  The examiner, most often a Psychologist, can use an aggressive questioning pattern to find out if the candidate can handle confrontation. Also, the psychologist may repeat previously asked questions to see if they are are going to be met with consistent answers.

The candidate may think to themselves that this is unfair and I’m not be treated properly.

The best thing you can do is go in with a good attitude, be prepared to be confronted during the interview and maintain your composure.

If you have questions about your disqualification and would like to schedule a free consultation at my Mineola office please do not hesitate to call me at 516 248 0040.

DCAS Notice of Examination and need to enter tasks performed

New York City’s Department of Administrative Services writes, administers and grades all Civil Service Exams.

A Notice of Examination states the job requirements for a civil service title. A Civil Service job candidate when filling out the application, which is often online, should keep the job requirements in front of them as they fill out the forms.

You must write that you performed the specific tasks listed in the job requirements for at least the minimum amount of time listed for the job. If you are not specific regarding the tasks you performed with the percentage of time you performed them you will be disqualified.

The first appeal is to the Committee on Manifest Errors (CME). You will be allowed to explain that you have the required experience as listed in the Notice of Examination but it still may be “too little, too late” and you may receive a letter that your next appeal would be to the New York City Civil Service Commission.

You may also want to take a photo of the tasks page as you fill it out just in case of a software glitch.

Failure to write that you performed the tasks listed in the Notice of Examination will result in your disqualification.

Can you get an attorney to help you with a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) from the NYPD?

Can you get an attorney to help you with a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) from the NYPD? The simple answer is YES.

The NYPD has recently started interviewing psychologically disqualified NYPD Police Officer candidates after they have received their NOPD and after they have a psychologist submit an expert report on their behalf.

Your chances of being successful increase substantially when you have an attorney prepare you for your upcoming NOPD interview. At times these interviews morph into interrogations and preparation from your attorney can assist you in handling harsh questioning.

No one can criticize you for speaking with someone prior to an oral psychological interview.

I would recommend hiring a civil service attorney from the first disqualification. Your attorney will prepare you, and help you get the best results in your appeal.

As a civil service appeals attorney with more than 17 years experience, I have helped many NYPD candidates win their appeals. 

If you have questions about your appeal and would like to schedule a free consultation at my Mineola office please do not hesitate to call me at 516 248 0040.

NYPD Disqualification – Get the facts before you complete your APD5

The best advice you can receive if you want to become a NYPD officer is to get your Certificates of Disposition for any arrests or summonses you may have received and your Lifetime Abstract from New York State Department of Motor Vehicles before your complete your Applicant Processing forms.

If you guess about any arrests you may have or moving violations or summonses you had you will receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification-NOPD stating that you are disqualified for “Omission of Pertinent Facts.”

The NYPD and other hiring agency such as NYC Department of Correction or FDNY have access to all of this information and when you submit an incomplete or inaccurate form they will compare it to their computer printouts and disqualify you.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a free consultation at my Mineola office please do not hesitate to call me at 516 248 0040.
