What are the Rights of Disqualified NYPD Candidates?

DCAS is New York City’s personnel department. DCAS has delegated the task of investigating applicants to the NYPD. You can appeal a NYPD disqualification. Applicants who are disqualified from appointment may challenge an agency’s findings on the grounds that such findings were made in bad faith or were arbitrary and capricious.

There are three potential appeals:

NOPD – Notice of Proposed Disqualification. Based on NYS Civil Service Law 50(4) a hiring agency must give a disqualified candidate an opportunity to provide explanations for a proposed disqualification in writing.

NOD – Notice of Disqualification. A disqualified candidate’s next appeal is to the Civil Service Commission.

If the disqualification is upheld by the Civil Service Commission the candidate can file an Article 78 lawsuit in the New York State Supreme Court in the County concerned.

If you received a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) in your email inbox you can appeal. I offer a free consultation if you receive a NYPD psychological, medical or character/background disqualification. Please call 516-248-3494 or email me at kevin@sheerinlaw.com to arrange for a free consultation. Two factors are crucial in your disqualification appeal. The first is that you follow the appeal process. The second is the facts of your case.

It is vital that you consult with someone experienced in this appeals process. If you attempt to appeal the NOPD on your own, you may miss opportunities to make crucial arguments that could turn the appeal in your favor.

As a civil service appeals attorney with more than 18 years of experience, I have helped many NYPD candidates 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.

Can an Attorney Help You with a NYPD Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD)?

NYPD's Firearms Training Woefully Inadequate, Former Trainers Say -  Gothamist

Can you get an attorney to help you with a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) from the NYPD? The simple answer is YES.

The NYPD has recently started interviewing psychologically disqualified NYPD Police Officer candidates after they have received their NOPD and after they have a psychologist submit an expert report on their behalf.

Your chances of being successful increase substantially when you have an attorney prepare you for your upcoming NOPD interview. At times these interviews morph into interrogations and preparation from your attorney can assist you in handling harsh questioning.

No one can criticize you for speaking with someone prior to an oral psychological interview.

I would recommend hiring a civil service attorney from the first disqualification. Your attorney will prepare you, and help you get the best results in your appeal.

Psychological Disqualifications

Candidates for NYPD and Nassau County Police Department and other law enforcement agencies may not be aware that the oral psychological exam can be rough.  The examiner, most often a Psychologist, can use an aggressive questioning pattern to find out if the candidate can handle confrontation. Also, the psychologist may repeat previously asked questions to see if they are are going to be met with consistent answers.

As a candidate, you may think this is unfair and that you are not being treated properly. The best thing you can do is go in with a good attitude, be prepared to be confronted during the interview and maintain your composure.

I am a successful civil service attorney with more than 18 years of experience.  I have many clients who are currently working as Police Officers because I helped them win their disqualification appeal. I can help you too.

If you have questions about your disqualification and would like to schedule a free consultation, please do not hesitate to call me at 516 248 0040.
