Appealing a NYPD Character Disqualification

View Post

If you receive a NYPD character, NYPD psychological or NYPD medical disqualification feel free to call me at 516 248-0040 to discuss your case.

Appealing a Character Disqualification from the NYPD

I frequently get calls asking what disqualifies a candidate from the NYPD. The NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) is the personnel office for New York City and they make the rules for applicants for NYC positions.  On the DCAS website they list the following factors that may disqualify a candidate from the NYPD:

  • Conviction of an offense which indicates lack of good moral character or disposition towards violence or disorder, or which is punishable by one or more years imprisonment.
  • Repeated convictions of an offense which indicates disrespect for the law.
  • Discharge from employment as a result of poor behavior or inability to adjust to discipline.
  • *Dishonorable discharge from the United States Military.
  • Conviction of an offense for Domestic Violence Misdemeanors.
  • *A Felony conviction.
  • Statutory Disqualification (disqualified by law).
  • The DCAS website overview of the NYPD application process can be accessed by clicking on the following link: www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/html/careers/application_overview.shtml

A candidate that receives a disqualification from the NYPD or another law enforcement or civil service position can contact my office to see if an appeal would be appropriate.

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.

Civil Service Job Disqualification NYPD (Psychological Disqualification) & FDNY (Medical Disqualification)

When you receive a civil service job disqualification such as a NYPD Psychological Disqualification or a FDNY Medical Disqualification it is crucial that you meet with a civil service law attorney to discuss your case.

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

An attorney who is knowledgeable in the area will be able to explain to you the three steps to the appeal process. The attorney will be able to get your background, history and complete story of your application process, any interaction you may have had with the hiring agency’s interviewers and discuss with you the best way to approach an appeal.

This is best done in person. This time will be spent reviewing documents and discussing your life, education, work history and any jobs you may have had. It is also good to discuss what happened during the application process, whether it be background, medical or psychological. After discussing all of the facts, you can decide if you would like to act.

It is always best to communicate, get all the facts, discuss the strategy and decide if you would like to take action. Sometimes deferring to another test or looking at other jobs may be the best advice.

For more than 18 years, I have been helping civil service job candidates file their appeals, along with advising them whether or not their appeal may be successful.

Get the Facts Before You Complete Your APD5

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

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

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

NYPD Applicant Advice to Prevent Disqualification

If your goal is to become a police officer, you must do considerable homework before filling out any forms, meeting with any investigator or attending any psychological evaluation.

You must research your school records, obtain your school transcript, and be ready to discuss any disciplinary history, as well as any withdrawals and/or failed classes. You must also know the dates and semesters you attended both high school and college.

You should also be able to describe all of your employment history in detail, with specifics regarding each job and job title. You must also know the start date and end date for each job, as well as any written disciplinary reports that appear in your personnel file. If you were fired from a job and someone contacts you asking for an explanation, you will not be able to brush it off by saying it was because you were written up for a lateness or some other infraction. You must be able to clearly present the facts regarding everything that occurred throughout your employment, including periods of unemployment (if any). 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.

If you have previously, or are now caring for a family member, you should have all of the dates and times clearly noted, as well as a list of the doctors your family member needed to see while under your care. You should also create a list of all of the household chores, including food shopping, trips to the pharmacy etc. that you did while caring for them.

The next most important thing you should do is get your 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. When you get it, you should review it carefully, so you know each and every violation you ever received. You must also make sure you are prepared to talk about what occurred that caused you to get the violation and be able to offer an explanation.

If your driver’s license was suspended or revoked you should act quickly to get the matter cleared up.

Problems will occur if a candidate appears before their investigator with an incomplete application booklet, vague references, no specifics and/or inaccurate or incomplete information.

Because you are expected to explain, in detail, the facts of your life, responses such as “I forgot”, “I don’t know”, “I don’t remember” or “those records do not exist” are generally not accepted.

A thorough, complete and accurate application package with specific dates, times and explanations will go a long way towards helping you get hired.

The same goes for the psychological interview. Before the psychological interview, you will be asked to fill out a form. The information on that form must correspond with all of the prior forms that you have already filled out. If there are any inaccuracies, or the forms you provided have any conflicting information on them, you will be thoroughly questioned about what is going on. Be sure to gather all of the facts before you begin the police officer application process.
