  • Let's say I'm dq'd because say... I took adhd prescription 3 times in the past 3 years ago (which may or may not be true) and I'm dq'd because of it.

    However this is not my current state at all and I've "grown" out of prescriptions like many here do.

    Can I go about ​​​​it without a lawyer... Maybe talking/meeting with a psychologist through my health insurance and if he agrees I do not have this current state anymore and writes me a letter stating so... I can show it to the psych department to reverse thier decision?

    I do not have the money to ​​​​​​do all this lawyer stuff for thousands of dollars.. Which may just go down the drain in the end.

    So my question is... In a situation like mine... Can I get a letter from a psychologist if I do not have this condition anymore and the psycholgist agrees

      good advice if they'll accept it. some documents they want sent directly from the agency/department that has them. psych wanted records from my job. they wouldn't release the records to me to give to the psych and the psych didn't know how to request the documents.

        It would a poor idea to try without a lawyer- especially because adhd is a legally protected disability.

        • Trying to appeal a Psych DQ without a Forensic Psychologist who is experienced in NYPD Policy and Procedure, and without an Attorney is a bad idea. Any psychologist can write a basic letter, but what you will need is a very detailed report complete with a review of all department documentation written by a Forensic Psychologist. This is what goes a long way in front of Civil Service Commision. As far as the attorney question, NYPD will always be represented by an attorney. You, nor your appeal psychologist are in no position to lodge arguments that involve complex areas of law. On civil service commisions own website they reccomend retention of an attorney for that very reason.

              I don't believe there is a high sucess rate for NYPD Defense even when they use attorneys.

              Same goes for the Psychologists Level 1 they use, there is currently 10 openings on NYC jobs for their positions as of July 2017....

              • I took my oral psych interview 2 weeks ago but didn't get a call nor mail. Is that a good thing?

                Comment


                • a preliminary decision was made on my file about 3 weeks ago. my investigator told me recently that it takes several months to receive a letter in the mail. to my understanding i heard that when you receive a letter in the mail it means you got DQed. can anyone shed any light on this?

                    The part that your wrong on which is what I thought up until recently as well, you don't have to wait 3 years for your psych to expire. Technically, you could take the psych exam over again in a month if you have a back up exam that is going through processing. You will obviously fail though. Failing a psych exam from one exam is a completely separate situation from another exam. In reality that's not really the case because they will review your previous psych records. It's imperative that you do allow a certain amount of time to pass in between the time that you failed a psych and then attempted to re-process off of another exam. I would think at the very least 2 years but 3 years or longer would be better.
                    When did you take your oral psych?

                        sometime in the second week of feb

                    • Took my oral psych about 4 days ago. called apd candidate relation today I'm on review. Never visited a social worker or psych. Smoked weed twice over 5 years ago. Worst things i ever done: Got one blackout from drinking about 5 years ago. Got one major write up for subordination about 3 years ago. Left a few jobs w.o 2 week noticed. 2 fires from no show up since I just decided to quit. Answered no to any of the "do you think about killing yourself" questions. Sat up straight, gave simple yes and no. Unless asked to explain.

                      This department is hard as hell to get into. If I knew all i know know 6 years ago I would of stayed at one job, kept my mouth shut and never drink or smoke. But hey that's life I guess. Even though it's possible ( but very slim) to get off review I'm looking forward to other departments and possibly other career fields. Can't sit and wait for one exam.

                      That's a poor work/social history. And you wonder WHY you got pulled..?

                        True. But it will be very disappointing to get dqed for small mistakes in the past. That I currently have corrected.

                        Why not just quit and give two weeks? You are within your right to not like the environment you work in. When you get asked why you bounced around jobs often you can always say "so and so reason"...Especially when they look at the paper and they see "blah and blah p/t gig for young adults inc"...Realistically you leaving on good terms and quitting is better than you just skipping out at least when they check on you your employers could say " hey he was a good kid"

                    • Small mistakes?

                      You literally described the worst candidate.

                          So much naivety. Got in minor trouble a few times in school, few traffic tickets many years ago- thats minor. Now paint the picture of a binge drinking pot head.... at least he was honest.

                          Im 6 years clean- driving record amd otherwise, and im semi-hesitant to re-process. I never got blackout drunk, or smoked weed. In fact, of the two i rarely drink.
