We continue to help candidates who have been disqualified from the NYPD.  For more than 18 years we have assisted candidates who receive letters for NYPD psychological, NYPD medical or NYPD character or background disqualification.  In each of these areas we have had notable success in appealing the grounds for disqualification.

It is crucial that you have a NYC Civil Service disqualification appeals attorney assist you in your fight to appeal your disqualification.  We frequently appear at the NYC Civil Service Commission to argue on behalf of our clients that their disqualification was improper.

What should you expect from the NYPD psychological testing process?

The NYPD will give you a written exam consisting of hundreds of questions.  After the exam is scored you will be called to meet with a NYPD Psychological staff member for an oral psychological interview.

You may be asked questions about your answers given on the written exam and you will be asked to explain your answers.

You will also be asked questions about your education, work, driving and arrest history (if any). You may also be asked about your history with Psychotherapy or any medicines you may have taken in the past, as well as your family history, personal relationships and all other relevant topics.

You will also need to explain any issues that may have arisen regarding any of the above topic areas.

In addition, you will have to provide authorizations so the NYPD Psychologist can get documentation from your schools or jobs, and you MUST provide these authorizations in order to complete the process.

You may receive notice that you have been placed on psychological review.  This review can take some time as other members of the NYPD team review your file.

Thereafter, you may receive a Notice of Proposed Disqualification or NOPD stating that you have 30 days to appeal.

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

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

If your goal is to become a police officer, you must do a considerable amount of work before completing any forms, meeting with any investigator or attending any psychological evaluation.

You will also need to research your school records, obtain your school transcript, and be ready to discuss any disciplinary history, withdrawals and/or failed classes. Make sure you also know the dates and semesters you attended both high school and college.

You must also be ready to explain your employment history in great detail, including, but not limited to, place of employment, job title, start date and end date for each of your jobs, as well as any written disciplinary reports that may appear in your personnel file. If you were fired from a job and someone contacts you asking for an explanation, you must be able to clearly present the facts regarding everything that occurred throughout your employment, including periods of unemployment (if any). If you were terminated from a job, you should disclose your termination upfront because when the NYPD gets your Social Security lifetime history they will see exactly what jobs you had, and ask you to explain why you were let go from certain jobs.

If you have previously, or are now caring for a family member, make sure you have all of these dates and times clearly noted, as well as a list of the doctors your family member needed to see while under your care. You should also create a list of any and all household chores, including food shopping, pharmacy trips etc. that you did while caring for them.

Another important thing you should do is get your LIFETIME driver’s abstract from the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles. Go to the DMV website for instructions on how to do this and give yourself a couple of weeks to receive this document. When you get it, review it carefully, so you know each and every violation you ever received, and make sure you are prepared to talk about whatever occurred that caused you to get the violation so you are ready to offer an acceptable explanation.

If your driver’s license was suspended or revoked you should act quickly to get the matter cleared up.

You will run into problems if you appear before the investigator with an incomplete application, vague references and/or inaccurate information.

A thorough, complete and accurate application package with specific dates, times and explanations will go a long way towards helping you get hired. The same holds true for the psychological interview. Before the psychological interview, you will be asked to fill out a form. The information on that form must correspond with all of the prior forms you have already completed. If there are any inaccuracies, or the forms you provided have any conflicting information, you will be thoroughly questioned about it. Be sure to gather all of the facts before you begin the police officer application process.

In a world that revolves around technology, you must be aware of EVERYTHING you say, do or post on social media.

The answer regarding whether you should appeal or withdraw from a NYPD Notice of Proposed Disqualification lies in the circumstances and facts involved in your disqualification. There are occasions when withdrawing might make sense. For instance, if your goal is to create more time and distance between an incident that may have caused you to be disqualified in the first place, then withdrawing now and trying again later might be best.

Having said that, it is important that you understand there are very few benefits to withdrawing if your ultimate goal is to become a NYPD Police Officer. In fact, the withdrawal letter states that the next time you apply for the job the disqualification file will be used in determining your suitability.

Accordingly, it probably behooves you to proceed with your disqualification appeal, if your ultimate goal is to become a NYPD Police Officer.

If you receive a NYPD NOPD psychological disqualification you must interview the psychologist you hire THOROUGHLY before they represent you or face severe regrets afterwards.

There are psychologists charging very low fees to represent disqualified NYPD candidates in disqualification appeals which seems like a great deal and a perfect way to get reinstated to the NYPD Police Officer eligible list. Not revealed is that these psychologists will report that you are NOT PSYCHOLOGICALLY QUALIFIED to be a police officer and they will mail their report stating that as part of your appeal.

THEREFORE, before hiring a psychologist to represent you in your NYPD NOPD psychological disqualification appeal you should:

  1. Ask the psychologist what their fee includes.
  2. Ask them if they will let you know if they are going to write a report that agrees with the NYPD stating that you are “psychologically unsuitable”.
  3. Ask them to let you see their report before they send it.
  4. Request that they not send the report if they cannot support your candidacy.
