The best advice you can receive if you want to be a NYPD officer is to get your Certificates of Disposition for any arrests or summonses you may have received and your Lifetime Abstract from New York State Department of Motor Vehicles before you complete your Applicant Processing forms.
If you guess about any arrests, moving violations or summonses you may have had you will receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification-NOPD stating that you are disqualified for “Omission of Pertinent Facts.”
The NYPD or other hiring agency such as, NYC Department of Correction or FDNY have access to all of this information and when you submit an incomplete form they will compare it to their computer printouts and disqualify you.
Failure to accurately record any of this information on your APD5 will not be excused by the hiring agency, and you will receive a disqualification notice with OMISSION OF PERTINENT FACTS checked off.
