NYPD Character Disqualification

Factors considered in NYPD Character Disqualifications:

When appealing a NYPD character disqualification what are the factors considered?

Frequency of violations or infractions, such as arrests, moving violations or other incidents such as school discipline or work discipline. If you were suspended or expelled from school this would work against your NYPD Police Officer application. Also, if you were late or disciplined at your job this would be a problem in your application. If you were terminated from one or more jobs without a good explanation this also would be something you would have to explain.

Severity of violations or infractions. If you were arrested and charged with crimes, such as felonies or misdemeanors, that would be something you would have to explain on appeal. If the disposition or final outcome of your case was dismissal or a lesser charge that could help you in your appeal.

The recency of your last violation or infraction is also important in your NYPD character appeal. If it has been a decade or even five years since your last infraction that could help you, as it shows the New York City Civil Service Commission that you have changed your behavior for the better.

The three categories do not stand alone – they are considered together in your appeal.

NYPD Disqualification – “Omission of Pertinent Facts”

Sheerin Law Logo

If you want to be successful in being hired for a New York Civil Service job, especially Law Enforcement jobs such as NYPD you have to gather all accurate data before filling out your investigation paperwork.

The best policy is to go to the Clerk of the Court in any county in which you were arrested or received a summons and get a Certificate of Disposition.

You should also get a LIFETIME driver’s abstract from the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles. Go to the DMV website for instructions on how to do this and give yourself a couple of weeks to receive the document.

In addition, get all of your school and work discipline records.

Failure to accurately record any of this information on your APD5 will not be excused by the hiring agency, and you will receive a disqualification notice with OMISSION OF PERTINENT FACTS checked off.

Click on the link below to hear further details regarding “Omission of Pertinent Facts”.


If you have questions about Omission of Pertinent Facts, feel free to call me at 516 248 0040.

NYPD Psych NOPD 2nd Interview

If you receive a Psychological Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) from the NYPD, you have 30 days to decide whether or not you would like to appeal.

If you do not take action, this disqualification will most likely affect your chances of being hired by other law enforcement agencies.

The good news is that the NYPD has begun a second psychological interview or a NOPD interview for some candidates that choose to appeal.

This second interview occurs at a different location and with a different psychologist from the first NYPD doctor that interviewed you. Based on the initial doctor’s interview and your expert or MHP – mental health professional’s report, this interview with a different NYPD psychologist has led to many people successfully getting their Psychological Disqualification reversed before having to appeal to the Civil Service Commission. This is very good news for candidates, as you may succeed by appealing your original NOPD disqualification.

RECENT CLIENT REVIEWS AFTER SECOND INTERVIEW:

March 24, 2020 – “Kevin helped me get my disqualification reversed after a second interview.”
Anne L.

March 11, 2020 – “I was disqualified and got a second interview and prepared with Kevin Sheerin in his office and my disqualification was reversed.”
Jeff J.

August, 2020 – “My experience with Mr. Sheerin was great from start to finish. I contacted Mr. Sheerin when I first got my NOPD, and he got to work right away. With his help I was able to thoroughly prepare for my second interview with the NYPD, which was a success.”
Anthony R.
