If you fail the NYPD Psychological Test you will receive (by email) a Notice of Proposed Disqualification (NOPD) stating that you are psychologically disqualified from the NYPD Police Officer title. You have thirty days from the date of the NOPD to appeal. For a successful outcome, it is wise to hire both an attorney and a psychologist who are experienced in the appeal process and who will help you file a rebuttal report. This report will be sent to the NYPD Candidate Assessment Division for review.
After your psychologist’s rebuttal report is reviewed you may receive an email directing you to come in for another interview with a NYPD psychologist. During that interview the psychologist will review the reports prepared by both the original NYPD psychologist and your expert psychologist. You can expect to be questioned on any inconsistencies between the reports and the problem areas found by the first NYPD Psychologist who disqualified you. This re-interview is an important step in the appeal process and should not be taken lightly. Be sure to hire both a seasoned Attorney and Mental Health Professional who are experienced in this type of appeal process.
