If you have been arrested you must check to see that the arrest appears on your APD5. Frequently, candidates give the excuse that someone told them that their arrest was sealed. This excuse will not work. If you have been arrested you must state that you were arrested, and when you were arrested, no matter what the disposition in your court case.
If you were suspended in school, you must say you were suspended in school. Your investigator and psychologist will ask for authorizations to find out about school disciplines, and when they get reports from your SUNY school or another college stating that you were suspended you will be disqualified, and will most likely be unable to have a successful appeal.
If you were terminated from a job, you should say you were terminated, because when the NYPD gets your Social Security lifetime history they will see what jobs you have had and have you explain why you were let go from certain jobs.
Unfortunately, if you do not reveal these things, you will be disqualified and will not be able to explain them away.
