NYPD Psychological Disqualification – Why Was I Disqualified?

All NYPD Candidates must go through the Psychological Evaluation process, and some will receive a psychological disqualification. There are many reasons why a Candidate might receive a psychological disqualification. It could be that the NYPD Psychologist felt the candidate had psychological issues that would adversely affect their ability to effectively perform their duties. It could also be that the psychologist simply made a mistake. If you feel you were erroneously disqualified, you should appeal your disqualification in an effort to get a new assessment from an independent psychologist that can give you a more accurate assessment of your psychological makeup and possibly get your disqualification decision reversed. Candidates can receive psychological disqualifications for various reasons, such as poor stress management, anger issues, racial bias or many other issues that might deem them unfit for police work.

Kevin Sheerin is a retired NYPD Captain who specializes in Disqualification Appeals. He has more than 20 years of experience helping Candidates appeal and reverse their disqualifications. Candidates often feel overwhelmed by the NYPD appeals process. Kevin and his team can walk you through the process, help you find a psychological expert and ensure that you make smart choices along the way.

If you have been disqualified for any reason and would like to schedule a free consultation, please contact Kevin Sheerin at 516.248.0040 to discuss your options.

Ace Your Oral Interview…

The NYPD oral psychological interview is a make-or-break moment in the appeal process. Kevin Sheerin and his knowledgeable team can provide you with valuable insight on how to succeed in the interview, ensuring that you leave a lasting positive impression.

You should go into your Oral Psychological Evaluation expecting it to be very stressful. This challenging environment is done by design. You must realize that they are applying for one of the most important and stressful jobs, with many unforeseen problems that can and will arise. You MUST be ready, willing and able to handle these challenges in a quick, calm and professional manner.  Your Evaluator will be making the determination as to whether you are capable of handling the daily stressors Police Officers face. This determination is based on many factors, including body language, attitude and your responses to different questions and situations. You must be prepared both physically and mentally for your Oral Psychological Evaluation.

Helpful Tips for your Interview

  • Arrive Promptly
  • Dress Appropriately
  • Have a Good Attitude

When meeting with the Oral Psychological Interview Evaluator (smile, address them by name, speak firmly and clearly, maintain eye contact, extend your hand to offer a firm handshake and when invited to sit, be sure to sit upright, not slouching). Moreover, NEVER let your Evaluator see you frustrated, angry or crying for any reason. This is all part of the evaluation process to “test” your capabilities for the job. Remember, you are on a job interview, and it is your attitude, body language and responses that are being evaluated. You should present yourself as if you are already a Police Officer if you would like the Evaluator to see you as one. Finally, keep your answers short and sweet, unless your Evaluator asks you to do otherwise.

If you failed your NYPD Psychological Evaluation or have been disqualified for any reason and would like to schedule a free consultation, contact Kevin Sheerin at 516 248 0040.

Your Guide to Navigating the NYPD Hiring Process…

When going through the NYPD hiring process it is important for Candidates to be engaged and respond promptly throughout the process. The quicker a Candidate responds back to their investigator, fills out their paperwork and schedules their appointments, the faster the process will go.

Candidates should also know that there are 3 things that will immediately disqualify them from becoming a Police Officer; (1) A felony conviction; (2) A domestic violence misdemeanor conviction; and/or, (3) A dishonorable discharge from the military.

The best advice for Candidates going through the process is to ALWAYS be truthful. Regardless of how much you may want to sugarcoat your past, it is always better to be truthful with the investigator. Lying about your background can only hurt you in the end, since the NYPD will review your history in its totality anyway. There is a chance you may not be disqualified for something you were truthful about, but there is a high probability you will be disqualified for lying or intentionally omitting important facts about yourself and/or your history.

How long do I have to file an appeal with the CSC?

The CSC must receive your appeal within 30 days of the date on the notice of disqualification. If you file your appeal after 30 days, you must submit an explanation for the delay with your appeal.

How do I file an appeal?

If you received a disqualification letter, that letter should provide instructions for filing an appeal with the CSC. For additional information, please visit the Filing a Disqualification Appeal with the CSC page.

You must be sure that the notice of disqualification is a final agency determination; if the notice provides instructions for appealing directly to:

the agency; or
the Department of Citywide Administrative Service’s (DCAS) Committee on Manifest Errors (CME); or
the New York City Transit Authority Personnel Review Board,

the appeal should NOT be sent to the CSC.

Will the Civil Service Commission Provide Me with an Attorney?

The Civil Service Commission does not provide attorneys for appellants.

What documentation should I submit to support my appeal?

The CSC requires that Appellants submit the notice of disqualification sent to them by the DCAS Commissioner or other examining agency when filing an appeal. The CSC cannot advise Appellants regarding how to pursue their appeals, or what documentation is necessary to submit in support of appeals before the CSC.

The information above is provided on the NYC Civil Service Commission’s website. If you feel overwhelmed after receiving your NYPD Disqualification, and you have questions you need answered, you should not attempt to appeal the disqualification on your own.

To appeal your psychological disqualification, you may need to gather additional evidence, such as medical records, letters of recommendation, and statements from mental health professionals. The NYC Civil Service Commission may grant you a hearing, where you can present your case and provide additional evidence. The hearing officer will review all the evidence presented and make a final decision on your appeal.

Seeking Professional Assistance for Your Appeal

Appealing a psychological disqualification can be a lengthy and complex process, so it may be beneficial to seek the assistance of a qualified attorney and mental health professional familiar with the NYPD hiring process. They can provide guidance and support throughout the appeal process and increase your chances of a successful outcome.
