How to Prevent NYPD Psychological Disqualification

If your goal is to become a police officer, you must do a considerable amount of work before completing any forms, meeting with any investigator or attending any psychological evaluation.

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

You must also be ready to explain your employment history in great detail, including, but not limited to, place of employment, job title, start date and end date for each of your jobs, as well as any written disciplinary reports that may appear in your personnel file. If you were fired from a job and someone contacts you asking for an explanation, 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 upfront because when the NYPD gets your Social Security lifetime history they will see exactly what jobs you had, and ask you to explain why you were let go from certain jobs.

If you have previously, or are now caring for a family member, make sure you have all of these 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 any and all household chores, including food shopping, pharmacy trips etc. that you did while caring for them.

Another 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 this document. When you get it, review it carefully, so you know each and every violation you ever received, and make sure you are prepared to talk about whatever occurred that caused you to get the violation so you are ready to offer an acceptable explanation.

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

You will run into problems if you appear before the investigator with an incomplete application, vague references and/or inaccurate information.

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 holds true 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 you have already completed. If there are any inaccuracies, or the forms you provided have any conflicting information, you will be thoroughly questioned about it. Be sure to gather all of the facts before you begin the police officer application process.

Rights of NYPD Proposed Disqualification Candidates

DCAS is New York City’s personnel department. DCAS has delegated the task of investigating applicants to the NYPD. You can appeal your 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:

  1. 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.
  2. NOD – Notice of Disqualification. A disqualified candidate can appeal a disqualification to the Civil Service Commission.
  3.  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.

NYPD Psych Disqualification Appeal

We continue to help candidates that have been disqualified from the NYPD.  For more than 18 years we have assisted candidates who received letters for NYPD psychological, NYPD medical or NYPD character or background disqualification.  In each of these areas we have had 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.  I frequently appear at the NYC Civil Service Commission to argue on behalf of my clients that their disqualification was improper.

NYPD Psychological, Medical & Background/Character Disqualifications

Law Office of Kevin P. Sheerin

As a Civil Service Appeals Law Firm, we help disqualified Civil Service job applicants appeal their NYPD disqualifications. If you receive a NYPD Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) for a psychological, medical or background/character disqualification feel free to contact us.

You can appeal a NYPD Psychological DQ by filing an appeal with the NYPD Candidate Assessment Division. Your best chances for a successful appeal is to hire a Civil Service Attorney and a forensic psychologist familiar with civil service disqualifications.

The first appeal of a NYPD NOPD psychological disqualification is to the NYPD Candidate Assessment Division. In the case of psychological disqualifications you may get a 2nd psychological interview. If you receive a 2nd psychological interview it is best to prepare with an expert.

The next step would be a Notice of Disqualification (NOD) which is appealed to the NYC Civil Service Commission. The Commission holds hearings to determine if your disqualification was improper.

When you are disqualified, your disqualification will not be reversed unless you take action. If you have any questions about your disqualification, and would like to schedule a free consultation at my office, call 516 248 0040 as we have been assisting disqualified NYPD, FDNY, DSNY, NYC DOC candidates for more than 18 years.
