NYPD Disqualification Appeals FAQ

WHAT MUST YOU DO EVERY DAY AS A CANDIDATE? 

If you are processing to be a NYPD officer you must check your email everyday.
When you appeared at the Candidate Assessment Division you signed a form giving the NYPD permission to contact you by email.


What are the two (2) steps to the disqualification and appeal process?

The first step is that you will receive a NOPD or Notice of Proposed Disqualification.
This appeal goes back to the hiring agency.
It could be psychological, medical or background/character.
It is best to consult with an attorney to discuss the facts of your disqualification, the appeal process and the most compelling arguments for you to succeed.


What are my chances of winning an appeal?

Appeal chances are decided on a case by case basis.
What did the agency base their disqualification decision on?
Is the hiring agency’s decision rational and can the agency defend it?
What is it about you that makes you a qualified candidate?
Your education, work history, accomplishments, college degrees, special skills, outstanding performance, problem free work and/or school records can go a long way in reversing your disqualification.  No involvement with law enforcement and a good driving record is also a plus.  Also, if you had some problems in the past, what have you done to overcome them and transform yourself into the person you are today?

What are the steps in an appeal process?

A.   NOTICE OF PROPOSED DISQUALIFICATION – NOPD:

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

If you are in the hiring process for a New York City Civil Service job and you would like to find out when your eligible list expires:

Dial 212-669-1357
Press 2
Enter your social security number

The DCAS help line will tell you when your list was established, and when it will expire. The expiration date is usually 4 years after the list was established or promulgated.

If you received a NYPD Disqualification letter you would probably need one (1) year to process your appeal, and if you succeed in your disqualification appeal, be appointed to the NYPD. Therefore, you should write to your investigator and request that action be taken on your file to allow yourself sufficient time to appeal if you are disqualified.

I have been a civil service disqualification appeals attorney for more than 18 years. During that time I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.

The first notice you will receive when you are NYPD disqualified is a Notice of Proposed Disqualification or NOPD.  You will have 30 days to respond to this NOPD.  It is recommended that you consult with an attorney to protect your rights and make the most compelling arguments to increase your chances of getting a reversal of your NYPD disqualification.

I have been a civil service disqualification appeals attorney for more than 18 years. During that time I have helped many of my clients win their appeal. I would be more than happy to help you too.

How to Avoid a NYPD Character Disqualification

YOU MUST BE CANDID AND HONEST…

If you have been arrested you must check that your arrest appears on your APD5. Frequently, candidates give the excuse that “someone told me my arrest record was sealed”. This is not an excuse, and it will not work. If you have been arrested, you must disclose that you were arrested, and when you were arrested, no matter what the disposition in your court case.

If you were suspended in school, you must disclose that you were suspended. Your investigator and psychologist will ask for authorizations to find out if you ever had any school disciplines, and when they get reports from your SUNY school or any other college that you were suspended, you will be disqualified, and will most likely be unable to have a successful appeal.

If you were terminated from a job you should disclose your termination because when the NYPD gets your Social Security lifetime history they will see exactly what jobs you have had, and will ask you to explain why you were let go from certain jobs.

Unfortunately, if you don’t reveal these things upfront you will get disqualified and will not be able to explain them away.
