If you are in the hiring process for a NYC Civil Service job and you would like to find out when your eligible list expires:

Dial 212-669-1357
Press 2
Enter your social security number

The DCAS help line will tell you when your list was established, and when it will expire. The expiration date is usually 4 years after the list was established or promulgated.

If you received a NYPD Disqualification letter you will need approximately one year to complete your appeal process. You must move swiftly to complete this process. You should write to your investigator and request that action be taken on your file so you have a sufficient amount of time to appeal if you are disqualified.

I have been a civil service disqualification appeals attorney for more than 18 years. During that time I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.

Good News… There has been an increase in the number of candidates getting their disqualification reversed at second psychological interviews.

However, in order to get a chance at a second interview, you MUST first file a NYPD NOPD Psychological Disqualification Appeal.  If you receive a second interview you are best served to know the issues that were raised in your disqualification and the arguments made by your appeal Mental Health Professional (MHP).

As a civil service appeals attorney with more than 18 years of experience, I have helped many NYPD candidates win their disqualification appeal. I can help you too.

If you are offered a second interview, I will prepare you for the interview.  This preparation is included as part of your appeal representation.

If you receive a NYPD NOPD Psychological Disqualification and would like to schedule a free consultation, please contact me at 516 248 0040.

If you want to become a NYPD police officer the first thing you must do is get your Certificates of Disposition to review any arrests or summonses you may have. You should also get your Lifetime Abstract from New York State Department of Motor Vehicles before completing your Applicant Processing forms.
You MUST know the facts about any arrests, moving violations or summonses you may have. If you “guess” and submit inaccurate information, you WILL receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) stating that you are disqualified for “Omission of Pertinent Facts.” Remember, the NYPD or other hiring agency, such as the NYC Department of Correction or FDNY have access to all of this information so when you submit an incomplete and/or inaccurate form they will compare it to their computer printouts and disqualify you.

With more than 18 years of experience as a NYPD disqualification appeals lawyer I have helped many disqualified candidates who have received either a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) or a final Notice of Disqualification (NOD) for psychological reasons from the NYPD.

The NOPD letter provides the candidate with an opportunity to select and hire their own psychological expert and have the NYPD psychological file sent to that expert for review and preparation of a rebuttal report. However, in order for the NYPD psychological file to be released, the disqualified candidate MUST first respond to the NOPD.

It is crucial that the disqualified candidate select a psychologist familiar with the appeals process. ONCE YOU SELECT AN EXPERT TO ASSIST YOU IN YOUR APPEAL YOU WILL MOST LIKELY NOT BE ABLE TO SWITCH EXPERTS LATER.

Also, selecting a psychologist that the candidate formerly had counselling session with is a poor choice.

If you receive a NOPD or NOD from the NYPD Psychological Service Division feel free to call me at 516 248 0040 to discuss your options.

If a candidate had an Individual Education Plan (IEP) in school, some NYPD psychologists will consider that a reason for disqualification. The NYPD psychologist will ask you to sign an authorization to get your school records. When the records are received they will review them and determine if the issues you had in school will effect your candidacy.

If a candidate took ADHD medicine while in school, this may also be considered as a reason for NYPD disqualification. Again, the NYPD psychologist will request an authorization to obtain your records from school, and review them to determine if you should be disqualified on that basis.

You can appeal your disqualification by getting an independent psychologist to help you. They will explain that what happened back in school is not your current condition or state. Often candidates have outgrown the need for medicines, or their condition has not followed them into adulthood.

Of course, if you do not take action, the disqualification will become final and will effect your ability to get any other civil service jobs.

A Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) is the first notice you will receive when you are NYPD disqualified.  You have 30 days to respond to a NOPD.  It is wise to 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.

During my more than 18 years as a civil service disqualification appeals attorney I have helped many of my clients win their appeal. I would be more than happy to help you too.

Although it can be both a disappointment and a frustration receiving a disqualification letter from NYPD, FDNY, DSNY or New York City Department of Corrections you can address the issues head on by taking action, rather than giving up. One of the great parts of New York City civil service jobs is the New York City Civil Service Commission. The process of appeals has improved dramatically over the more than 18 years I have been helping disqualified candidates appeal their disqualifications.

I have created this video to explain the civil service job disqualification appeal process.

You can also visit my website http://www.sheerinlaw.com  for more information about the disqualification appeal process.

HONESTY! If you have ever been arrested you must disclose that fact and confirm that your arrest appears on your APD5. You must always disclose your arrest record regardless of the disposition in your court case.

If you were ever suspended in school, you must disclose that fact. Your investigator and psychologist will ask for authorizations to find out if you ever had any school disciplines. When they get the reports from your school/college that you were suspended, you will be disqualified if you did not disclose that up front, and will most likely have an unsuccessful appeal.

If you were ever fired from a job you must disclose your termination because when the NYPD gets your Social Security lifetime history they will see exactly what jobs you had, and will ask you to explain why you were let go from certain jobs.

If you do not reveal these things upfront you will get disqualified and will not be able to explain them away.

We are here to assist you if you receive a NYPD Disqualification…

Feel free to call us at 516-248-0040 or email me: kevin@sheerinlaw.com.

There is a two step appeal process:

The first step in the appeal process is to appeal to the NYPD, who will review the appeal package you submit. In the case of psychological disqualifications you may get a second psychological interview. If you receive a second psychological interview it is best to prepare with an expert. The main issues that will come up in the second psychological interview are obvious.

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

When you are disqualified, that disqualification will not be reversed unless you choose to take action. I have been assisting disqualified NYPD, FDNY, DSNY, NYC DOC candidates for more than 18 years. Each appeal is different, just as your history of school, work and personal relationships are different.

Police Officer Shot in the Bronx, NYPD Says

Part of the appeal process for psychological disqualification is finding a psychologist who will help you by making the strongest arguments for your candidacy. If the psychologist is unable or unwilling to look at your good points, strengths, adversities you’ve overcome, accomplishments, perseverance over hardships, and persistence in improving despite any difficulties or disabilities you may have had, then you should look for a different psychologist. The psychologist you hire SHOULD BE ON YOUR SIDE, advocating for you. Before you choose a psychologist to assist you with your disqualification appeal, ensure that you have an agreement with them, that if they don’t believe you are qualified, they will let you know beforehand, and they will not forward their report to any hiring agency, such as the NYPD, stating that you are psychologically unsuitable.

Beware of psychologists who charge you a very low fee, 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 have destroyed any chance you had of ever becoming a NYPD officer.

You should 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 let you know that they cannot support your candidacy, AND FURTHER AGREE that they will not forward any report to the NYPD if they come to such a conclusion.

If this does happen, at least you will have an opportunity to find someone else that is willing to help you and support your appeal.
