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 other relevant topics.
You will be expected to explain any issues that may arise in connection with 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.
As a civil service disqualification appeals attorney with more than 18 years of experience, I have extensive knowledge on how to appeal a NYPD Disqualification. Over the years I have helped many clients win their appeal. I can help you too.
