NYPD Psych disqualification NOPD interview

If you are psychologically disqualified from the NYPD Police Officer title you will receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification by email. You have thirty days to appeal this NOPD. You should hire an attorney and designate a pyschologist to help you file a rebuttal report which will be sent to the NYPD Candidate Assessment Division.

After your psychologist’s report is reviewed you may receive an email to come in for another interview with an NYPD psychologist. During the interview the psychologist will review the reports prepared by the original NYPD psychologist and your expert. You can expect to be questioned on any inconsistencies between the report and the problem areas found by the first NYPD doctor who chose to disqualify you.

This re-interview is an important step in the appeal process.

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.

Is it worth appealing a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD)?

It’s not going to get any worse… You are currently disqualified… It can only get better. You have two chances to succeed. You could win at a re-interview at the NOPD Notice of Proposed Disqualification phase. It is always important to have all good mental health professionals and attorneys to help you, guide you and prepare you for any re-interview.

If you are unsuccessful you have an appeal to the New York City Civil Service Commission which holds hearings and may rule that your disqualification was improper. This is a second chance to win. Naysayers and critics can claim that no one ever wins, but this is not true. Recently candidates have had their disqualification reversed at a NOPD re-interview. Additionally, candidates have had their disqualifications reversed after hearings at the Civil Service Commission. But, your disqualification will not be reversed if you do not take action.

If you receive a NYPD NOPD psychological disqualification do not hesitate to call (516) 248-0040 or email kevin@sheerinlaw.com to schedule a free in office consultation.

YOU MUST APPEAL NYPD PSYCH NOPD OR YOUR CASE WILL BE DISMISSED LATER

There is some confusion among candidates about whether they must appeal a NYPD psych NOPD (Notice of Proposed Disqualification).

To clarify, you must appeal a NYPD NOPD psychological disqualification at the NOPD stage or your appeal will be dismissed.

The Psychological Services Assessment section file may only be reviewed by a licensed health care professional. Your only opportunity to have your Psychological Services Assessment section file reviewed during this administrative process will be at this time.

IF YOU DO NOT SUBMIT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION BY THESE DEADLINES, THIS PRELIMINARY DETERMINATION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL UNSUITABILITY WILL BECOME FINAL. YOU WILL NOT HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE YOUR FILE REVIEWED BY A LICENSED HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL DURING THIS ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESS AND YOU WILL RECEIVE NOTIFICATION THAT YOU HAVE BEEN DISQUALIFIED.

If you try to begin your appeal, as many people would advise you at the NOD stage, the NYPD Legal Bureau will move to dismiss your appeal for failing to exhaust your administrative remedies and failing to have your psychological file sent to your Mental Health Professional (MHP) at the NOPD stage. Your appeal may be dismissed.

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