I posted this information for disqualified candidates 12 years ago and the information contained in the post is still relevant to appeals today.  If you receive a NYPD character, NYPD psychological or NYPD medical disqualification call me at 516 248 0040 to discuss your case.

Appealing a Character Disqualification from the NYPD

I frequently get calls inquiring about what disqualifies a candidate from the NYPD.  The NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) is the personnel office for New York City and they make the rules for applicants for NYC positions.  On the DCAS website they list the following factors that may disqualify a candidate from the NYPD:

The following are factors which would ordinarily be cause for disqualification:

  • Conviction of an offense which indicates lack of good moral character or disposition towards violence or disorder, or which is punishable by one or more years imprisonment.
  • Repeated convictions of an offense which indicates disrespect for the law.
  • Discharge from employment as a result of poor behavior or inability to adjust to discipline.
  • *Dishonorable discharge from the United States Military.
  • Conviction of an offense for Domestic Violence Misdemeanors.
  • *A Felony conviction.
  • Statutory Disqualification (disqualified by law).

A candidate that receives a disqualification from the NYPD other law enforcement or civil service positions can contact my office to see if an appeal would be appropriate.

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

If you have questions about your disqualification and would like to schedule a free consultation please feel free to contact me at 516 248 0040.
