Crucial to Check Your Email Inbox for NOPD and NOD Notices from NYPD

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

Candidates may have an overflowing inbox with 25, 50 or 100 emails a day.  If you miss a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) email for a NYPD psychological disqualification or a Notice of Disqualification (NOD), and you do not respond within 30 days, your appeal may be dismissed.

Candidates may claim, “I never got it!”, but evidence can be submitted showing the day, date and time the email was sent.

The best advice is to check your email inbox and spam folder very carefully every day, because failure to do so can prevent you from getting appointed to the job, after spending 40-50 hours in applicant processing.

Another tip may be to set up an email filter to have your email provider separate the emails into a separate folder.

Case dismissals are occurring more frequently, and close attention is required to prevent bad results.

Appealing NYPD Medical and Psychological Disqualifications

New York City Personnel Services Bulletin 100-10R addresses the process of appealing a civil service job disqualification.

New York State Civil Service Law and the New York City Charter authorized the DCAS Commissioner to disqualify a candidate for medical or psychological reasons.

Throughout my 18 years of experience as a civil service disqualification appeals attorney, I have helped many of my clients win their appeal. I can help you too.

NYPD Psychological Appeals – One Chance to Choose Expert & Obtain NYPD Records

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

I am a NYPD disqualification appeals lawyer with more than 18 years of experience. I assist disqualified NYPD candidates who receive either a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) for psychological reasons or a final Notice of Disqualification (NOD) for psychological reasons from the NYPD.

In the NOPD letter, the disqualified candidate is given an opportunity to select an expert and have the NYPD psychological file sent to that expert for review and  preparation of a rebuttal report.  If the candidate does not respond to the NOPD the NYPD psychological file will NOT be released.

It is crucial that the disqualified candidate select a psychologist familiar with the appeals process to assist them. ONCE YOU SELECT AN EXPERT TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR APPEAL YOU WILL MOST LIKELY NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE YOUR CHOICE LATER.

Also, selecting a psychologist that the candidate formerly had counselling session with is a poor choice.

If you receive a NOPD or NOD, please feel free to contact me at 516 248 0040 to discuss your options.

NYPD Psychological NOPD 2nd Interview

If you receive a Psychological Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) from the NYPD, you have 30 days to decide whether you would like to appeal.

If you do not take action, the disqualification will most likely affect your chances of ever 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 choosing to appeal.

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

RECENT CLIENT REVIEWS AFTER THE SECOND INTERVIEW:

April, 2021 – “Kevin Sheerin did an excellent job with my appeal. A straight shooter that gets you to the finish line with ease. Highly knowledgeable and thorough. Reasonably priced and worth every penny. I highly recommend his services!”
Daniel G.

March 23, 2021 – “I was found psychologically qualified after a second interview with the help of Kevin Sheerin… Thank you so much Kevin Sheerin…”
Vijay G.

February, 2021 – “Kevin Sheerin helped me prepare for a second interview which I passed! Always attentive, caring and responsive. Completely recommend!”
V.V.

February, 2021 – “Mr. Sheerin is by far the best…  I have had an overall great professional experience, and he never gave up hope for me… 1000% recommend!”
Emmanuel C.

January, 2021 – “I was on dreaded psych review for over a year and could not get an answer from my psychologist about anything. After waiting for such a long time I turned to Kevin and his team for help… Kevin was able to get me my NOPD and immediately… appeal it. After repeating the psychological I was found to be qualified to be a police officer. I’m now in the NYPD and happy with my career. If you hire Kevin you won’t regret it!”
Connor O.

NYPD Psychological Disqualification Appeals – NYPD Psych DQ

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

If you receive a NYPD NOPD psychological disqualification please call (516) 248-0040 or email kevin@sheerinlaw.com to schedule a free in office consultation. Due to Covid-19 and social distancing we are also offering ZOOM consultations.

Kevin has been helping disqualified candidates appeal their NYPD psychological or character disqualifications for more than 18 years.

He offers many opportunities during the course of your appeal to meet and spend time with him in his office. The first opportunity is when you receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification or NOPD.

Kevin offers free office consultations. He will meet with you to discuss your history and how the interview with the hiring agency’s psychologist went.  He will discuss with you the topics the NYPD psychologist focused on during your interview.  He will speak with you about your history of arrests, violations or incidents, if any, as well as any problems you may have had in school, at work or in relationships.

During the consultation Kevin will explain to you each and every detail of the NYPD Psychological Disqualification Appeal process.

The consultation generally takes about one hour. After that hour you will better understand the disqualification appeal process and the issues that will ultimately determine your case. Kevin will let you know what he believes your chances are of having your disqualification reversed and what the next best step might be for you.

Once you file a NOPD appeal with your chosen Mental Health Professional (MHP) your chances are very good that the NYPD will offer you a second interview at a different location.  This location is 1 Lefrak City Plaza in East Elmhurst, Queens. These re-interviews are with a different unit which is separate from the Candidate Assessment Division on 20th Street in the old Police Academy building.

If you receive one of these NYPD Psychological Review notifications Kevin will prepare with you in his office and will discuss the tips and tactics needed to succeed and how to avoid traps in the re-interview.  He will also discuss the key issues involved in your case so you will have greater insight rather than going in blindly into this re-interview.

During this preparation session you will gain insight into why the hiring agency believes you should be disqualified. Basically,  they believe that you are psychologically unsuitable, so gaining this insight can give you a leg up in your appeal.

If you are unsuccessful or do not receive a second psychological interview you will receive a Notice of Disqualification (NOD).  At this point your appeal is filed with the New York City – Civil Service Commission. Even at this second step of the NYPD Psychological Disqualification process candidates are, more frequently, receiving an additional re-interview. If you receive an additional re-interview after the appeal to the Civil Service Commission, once again Kevin will offer you a preparation session in his office to discuss the process and your best chances for success.

When the NYPD submits documents supporting their decision to uphold your disqualification Kevin requests time to submit a Reply. He will take the arguments that the NYPD presents and reply to those contentions and point out where they are exaggerated, misguided, distorted or just plain wrong.

After filing a NYPD Psychological Disqualification appeal to the New York City – Civil Service Commission some candidates are granted a Hearing before the Commission. If you receive this hearing Kevin will prepare with you in his office for approximately two hours to again discuss the issues that are going to determine the outcome of your case. He will speak with you about proper attire and grooming when attending the hearing.  He will speak in depth, so you fully understand the function of the New York City – Civil Service Commission and what type of issues they would like to have resolved in order to have your disqualification reversed.

Mr. Sheerin’s standard fee for all of these services, including a hearing, if one is granted, before the New York City – Civil Service Commission, is $2500. This flat fee includes an initial in office consultation, an in office preparation session for each and every re-interview you receive and at least one (1) two hour preparation session if you receive a Hearing before the New York City – Civil Service Commission.

This is the same fee Kevin has been charging since he began doing this type of work back in 2003.

Kevin believes meeting with candidates in person and spending time with them is crucial when deciding the best next step for a potential NYPD career or other employment choice. Spending time drilling down on the issues that form the basis of a disqualification with someone who has been in this line of work for over 18 years is crucial for a candidate trying to get a thorough, complete and accurate understanding of the challenges they are facing.

Phone consultations do not allow for a review of documents such as court dispositions, moving violations, college transcripts or a CAS-5 filled out during the application process. It is crucial to review Individual Education Plans (IEPs) as well as issues regarding ADHD medicines and work or school discipline, suspension or terminations, in order to get a complete sense of your chances on appeal.

Everyone knows how life-changing a successful disqualification appeal can be for you.

By investing some of your time, money and energy you are making the best investment into a successful future for yourself.

If you have questions about your disqualification appeal and would like to schedule a free consultation via ZOOM or at Kevin’s office in Mineola, please call him at 516 248 0040.
