How to become a NY Police Officer

Before applying to become a NYPD officer, candidates who meet the hiring prerequisites outlined in the paragraph below 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.

To be eligible to sit for the written civil service exam, applicants must be between the ages of 17.5 and 35. To be hired as an officer with the NYPD, candidates must be US citizens and at least 21 years of age, hold a high school diploma plus at least 60 college credits with a minimum 2.0 GPA, have a valid New York driver’s license, and reside within the five boroughs of New York City or surrounding counties. The college experience requirement may be waived with two years of full-time service with the US Armed Forces.

As a civil service disqualification appeals attorney with more than 18 years of experience, I have extensive knowledge on how to appeal a NYPD Disqualification. Over the years I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.

Once hired as a police recruit, prospective officers attend the New York City Police Academy. The rigorous training program lasts six months. Courses cover such topics as law, behavioral science, physical training and tactics, police science, firearms training, and First Aid/ CPR. Classes in terrorism, identity theft, and other advanced law enforcement skills are also part of the curriculum. Recruits must pass 4 separate exams with a score of 75% or higher to graduate from the academy and be sworn in as NYPD officers.

Use Caution Completing Assessment Forms during NYPD Application Process

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

In order to become a NYPD Police Officer you must accurately disclose all of the facts regarding your past. You must obtain your Certificates of Disposition for any arrests or summonses you may have received, along with your Lifetime Abstract from New York State Department of Motor Vehicles before you complete your Applicant Processing forms.

DO NOT GUESS ABOUT ANY OF YOUR RECORDS! If you guess about arrests, moving violations or summonses you may have had, you will receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) stating that you are disqualified for “Omission of Pertinent Facts.”

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

Here is a link to a podcast on the disqualification appeals topic.

BE CAREFUL when Hiring a Psychologist for your Appeal

Part of the psychological disqualification appeal process is finding a psychologist who will help you make the strongest arguments for your candidacy. If the psychologist is unable or unwilling to acknowledge your accomplishments, good points and strengths or adversities you have overcome, or your persistence in improving despite past difficulties or disabilities, then you must look for a different psychologist. The psychologist you hire MUST BE ON YOUR SIDE, advocating for you.

Beware of psychologists who charge very low fees, tell you they will help you, and then do a superficial interview, as they may simply use the NYPD’s testing to confirm that you are unsuitable, and then send a report to the NYPD stating that you are unsuitable, without ever telling you. If this happens, not only did they not help you, but they actually destroyed any chance you had of ever becoming a NYPD officer.

You MUST make a clear agreement with any psychologist you hire that they will discuss their findings with you BEFORE sending any report to the NYPD.

The psychologist you are considering MUST understand that they are supposed to be advocating for you, and if they don’t believe you are suitable, then they should tell you they cannot support your candidacy, AND FURTHER AGREE not to submit any report to the NYPD if they come to such a conclusion. If this happens, at least you have an opportunity to find a psychologist who will help and support your appeal.

Appeal Process for NYPD Psychological Disqualification

Candidates who fail to provide documents requested during the police officer application process will have their file marked discontinued. WARNING! There is no appeal from a discontinued status.

Candidates that receive a NOPD or Notice of Proposed Disqualification have thirty (30) days to appeal their disqualification.

To succeed in an appeal it is best to hire experts to assist you.  Depending on your level of interest in this job, the investment may pay off over the long run if your appeal is successful.

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

You will need both an attorney and a Mental Health Professional that specialize in disqualification appeals. Attempting to appeal on your own may cause you to miss out on important opportunities to make crucial arguments that could turn the appeal in your favor.
