How to Become a NYPD Police Officer

Steps to Becoming a NYPD Officer

  1. Meet the minimum qualifications for prospective officers.
  2. Take the New York City civil service exam.
  3. Complete an online application.
  4. Pass the medical exam.
  5. Complete the personal character assessment.
  6. Complete oral and written psychological assessments.
  7. Pass the physical abilities test.
  8. Appear for a pre-hire interview.
  9. Complete police academy training.
  10. Begin working as an officer with the NYPD.

Before applying to become an officer with the NYPD, candidates who meet the hiring prerequisites must first take the written civil service exam. Candidates who pass the civil service exam must next apply to the department. Eligible applicants will be contacted to complete medical and psychological screenings, a character investigation, a physical fitness test, and a pre-hire interview. Prospective recruits who perform well throughout these stages will be conditionally hired and invited to proceed to the final step, attending the New York City Police Academy.

NYPD Police Officer Depression and Anxiety

Mental Health Resources for NYPD Members

Many people go through periods in their lives when things seem hopeless or overwhelming. The first step toward a solution is to speak with someone.

Seeking help is never a sign of weakness. If a Police Officer is dealing with a problem of any kind, they should contact and utilize the services offered to them both inside and outside the NYPD. No one should ever shoulder their burden alone. There are trained members ready, willing and able to listen and help 24 hours a day.

Working for the NYPD means that you spend your day helping others. However, before you can take care of anyone else, you must first take care of yourself.

Appealing a NYPD Psychological Disqualification

We continue to help candidates who have been disqualified from the NYPD.  For more than 18 years we have assisted candidates who receive letters for NYPD psychological, NYPD medical or NYPD character or background disqualification.  In each of these areas we have had notable success in appealing the grounds for disqualification.

It is crucial that you have a NYC Civil Service disqualification appeals attorney assist you in your fight to appeal your disqualification.  We frequently appear at the NYC Civil Service Commission to argue on behalf of our clients that their disqualification was improper.

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

NYPD psychological disqualifications and NYC Department of Corrections psychological disqualifications are often appealed.  It is important to hire someone who knows this area thoroughly, has appeared before the Civil Service Commission, knows their rules and procedures and knows how they have decided cases in the past.

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.

If you have questions about your disqualification and would like to schedule a free consultation, please feel free to contact me at 516 248 0040.

Can I become a NYPD Police Officer without a HS diploma?

All prospective NYPD recruits must have a high school diploma/GED, AND either 60 semester hours of college credit or two years of full-time experience in the United States Armed Forces.

Those who do not meet these guidelines may be interested in the NYPD’s Police Cadet Corps. This work-study program places cadet recruits in paid NYPD support assignments while providing tuition assistance to help candidates meet the college experience requirement.

If you receive a NYPD Disqualification call me at 516-248-0040 to schedule a free phone or in-office consultation.
