All NYPD Candidates must go through the Psychological Evaluation process, and some will receive a psychological disqualification after going through such process. There are numerous 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 a Candidate feels that they were erroneously disqualified, they should appeal their disqualification with the hopes of getting a new assessment from an independent psychologist that could give them a more accurate assessment of their psychological makeup and possibly get their disqualification decision reversed. Candidates can receive psychological disqualifications for such things as, poor stress management, anger issues, racial bias or many other issues that might deem them unfit for police work.
