Why Hiring an Attorney to Help with Your Disqualification Appeal is Worth it

Discouragement is often the first feeling that comes over a candidate after they receive a NYPD NOPD. Followed by conversations with friends and family about how unfair the system is or how others with worse histories, problems or incidents were hired and are currently Police Officers.

Once the initial shock has worn off, it is good to step back and assess what can be done to fight a disqualification.

After serving as a Lieutenant in the NYPD Legal Bureau, Kevin Sheerin retired as a Captain in 2001 and began helping candidates who were disqualified after failing their psychological test. In 2000 Kevin began assisting disqualified candidates with the appeal. Over the years Kevin has helped hundreds of disqualified individuals become NYPD Police Officers.

The first thing one must ask themselves, is do I have the necessary qualities to become a police officer. You should also ask yourself if appealing the disqualification is realistic. If the answer to these questions is yes, then it might be good for you to investigate further and inquire about the appeal process.

Perhaps you had a bad day in the oral psychological interview or you reacted defensively, evasively or simply missed the point. This is human nature when faced with some of the facts and incidents from your past, and it is quite possible that you may have become defensive, evasive or tried to minimize the problems or even reacted inappropriately to criticism and accusations. If this is the case, you may want to work with an independent forensic psychologist who will process your history and story so that it can be cast in a more favorable light. If cast in a more favorable light, the NYPD will many times grant a second interview to disqualified candidates. These interviews most often take place in Lefrak City in Corona Queens. Preparation for these interviews is vital. Understanding the concepts and steps, and speaking to neutral independent third parties with experience in this field can help you greatly. Frequently, good things occur when you receive proper insight and guidance by speaking with others experienced in this field.
