  • Ok thanks for that Jvegas. Right now the only permanent DQ I have is medical (NYPD). However when listing my status with other agencies I wasn't hired with, I was putting disqualified. So in the example I posted, I explained it as being DQ'd from Park Police for my driving record, even though I can reapply. Will this matter of semantics screw me up?

The letters were very generic and I was even addressed as Mr. in the second letter. I read the MPTC disqualifiers and none of those apply to me. The first agency that DQd me which was PGPD should have rejected me instead.
        What was the general topic of the disqualification matter? I'm in the process with PG so I'm curious 0_0

          Well I would safely assume that you are just rejected from all of them. PGPD uses the same letter template for everyone even if the BI says you can reapply with them. JVegas may be able to clarify on your comments but I believe you are just rejected. Do what you need to do so you can become eligible. Not only would it allow you to reapply but it does show you are responsible of taken care of these things so you can be an eligible candidate for hire.

          @NJtoDC I dont think it has screwed you up. If you are currently in the running with these agencies I would call and clear it up that meant to put rejected and not DQ'd. I would think that the personnel looking at your file would know you are not actually DQ'd from those agencies for a simple ticket or so from your driving record. However, JVegas may be able to clarify more.

            I see you already took the written and physical. I assume you had a preliminary background interview with a BI immediately following the agility right?

            The disqualifer for PG is drug usage within 3yrs of applying. You basically cannot have done any experimental usage with illegal drugs within the last 3yrs prior to applying. If so then you have to wait 3yrs to reapply. Its common with alot of agencies. That questions gets asked often in forum.

              • 3 years out may not be long enough you know? There are candidates who never have or are 10-20+ years removed from it. There are so many candidates applying that departments can pick the best applicants. I wish you luck Private 1

I guess the 3 year rule is what disqualified me. But...if my math is correct 2003 to 2006 is 3 years.
                          Ohh ok yes i was aware that. I saw many people be escorted out because of several issues before the written. My friend actually told me that he heard one applicant tell the BI that he had just used prior to arriving at the test date LOL

                          Thanks for answering. I thought it may have been something else but i was aware of this. I've passed the tests so I'm just playing the waiting game. We didnt have any interviews, he jut handed us the packet and asked if we had any packet related questions and we were sent off.

For starters get my degree in hand (Sept. 2011), get my driving record expunged, and learn some spanish. Keep my nose clean as I have already been doing. For the current officers, at what age did you get hired?
                            I don't know Spanish but one of the agencies I applied to said they have Rosetta Stone at their station for officers to use. Besides the fact that officers whom speak Spanish teach the other officers the basics of what to say to Spanish speaking people. I did a ride along with an officer that spoke Spanish and we assisted on calls involving spanish speaking individuals. That was fun!!!!!!!!!!!!

                            • Hello to all again,

                              I completed the process today for BPD. I completed and passed the poly on 12/27, the Medical on 12/28 and the oral psych today. Now the 64,000 question is how long will it be till I hear something? Hopefully wont be too long, if the plans for a Feb Academy go through.

                              Anybody else recently finish up the process and waiting?

                              • Quick question to those already with some time on, How long would i have to wait to reapply? I was "rejected because of speed camera tickets" . I got a bunch of them in June in the middle of my process i know stupid right. I've never gotten any before. My driving record is clean. And i most definitely haven't gotten any since. Hopefully i can reapply soon,would have to start over with the civil service test again? I plan on calling my BI back after the holidays to find out if i was just rejected and can still apply or if i was permanently DQ'd. Any other insight would help though.
