    Thank you very much. I will try this.
    My Oral Psych Interview was at the end of March 2015, and I was given a very "Hard" deadline of 4/1/2015 to have the notarized docs faxed back to the Psy. D who interviewed me. In spite of trying to explain that some of the people she wanted docs from were hard to reach (as in on vacation, and no practicing due to retirement any longer) she wouldn't waiver on the 4/1/2015 deadline for the docs.
    I managed to get her everything she requested on time, but have since heard nothing from the Psych. eval aspect of my candidacy.
    No Hold, No denial or fail, no pass. Nothing. Even my BI is a little curious as to why I would have been given such a hard date to have the docs in by, but still not have any determination whatsoever.

    I will certainly follow your advice and send the email explaining my situation.
    And thank you very much.

I have no advice to offer you on "speeding up" your review. At this point; it would be a wise and prudent move to look into employment with other police agencies out of state--if that's what you want to do. Many of them--down south and out west-- don't have any maximum age limits for entry level employment.

      Otherwise; if you want to remain in New York State. There are other law enforcement positions-- corrections,courts,probation, and parole -- that don't have any maximum age limits. July is less than three weeks away and if you don't get approved by the psych unit you won't be attending the academy class. Good Luck!
      According to my BI, there has been NO determination from the Psych Unit at all. No Hold, No fail, No pass, nothing.

        That does not help your situation. You are pretty much in a state of limbo in a chaotic, unreliable bureaucracy.

        • RONIN PROSPECT:

          In a similar situation as you. Have not reached maximum age yet (though not too far from it), exam is newer and will not expire after July academy, but I am definitely having trouble with getting in contact, or getting a definitive response. To this day, have yet to receive a single phone call back after the messages I've left over the last 2 months. Appear to still be in a "discontinued" status even though my documents had been sent in time. My BI is aces -- timely communication and very professional, but hands are tied with regards to psych process. PM me if you'd like.

          • Hey guys, definitely great info here. I have a few concerns that I am completely lost on.

            Firstly, I've completed all steps except the mini-med. I was placed on Psych review, due to me needing to turn in my college transcripts and a Military discplinary record. I turned in the transcripts the next day but The Military records took almost 3 months to get mailed to the Doc, but in between then me and him emailed constantly back and forth. When I was finally able to deliver, he told me that it should be sufficient, but he was waiting on other info. I asked if it was something I could provide or request and he coldly told me no. I've noticed other people on my exam clearing the mini-med, so I called candidate relations to see if I was scheduled yet and they told me my process was discontinued due to psych.

            My concern is what exactly does that mean? Does the Doc need to review my file with a superior now? Am I DQ'ed? I don't want to email him again to pressure him, and I don't want to inquire with the psych dept. and go above his head either. Quite a dilemma.

              Objectively, by reading your post; you're in the process of being disqualified and removed off the civil service list. It is not the purview of the NYPD psych unit to tell you this. They merely forward their findings to the APD and NYPD then sends you a proposed "letter of disqualification" based on psych issues. Where you the subject of disciplinary action by the military?

                  Discontinued and "review" are different. Disocontinued usually means they closed oit the case because they were misisng paperwork or they candidate was unresponsive. I believe he can reopen and should call his investigator

                    You are not DQ. You should inquire with your investigator, and definitely call psych services as well.

                      Unfortunately, the hiring process of NYPD appears to be a bureaucratic nightmare for many. Way too much emphasis is placed on psychological evaluations which, at best, is only an art and not an exact science.

                        • I had my psychological oral interview in early April and haven't heard anything back yet. I contacted my investigator back in March and she just got back to me about 3 weeks ago saying she would contact me soon to set up an interview.

                          Is there a number I can contact to see if I was disqualified or something? I had to get documentation from a hospital visit from one time I was brought to the hospital for drinking when I was in my teens (did not have alcohol poisoning) and that was more or less my only blemish so I'm not entirely sure what's taking so long.

                          Any help on who I can contact would be appreciated.

                              Hopefully, the CSC will overturn your psych DQ and restore your name to the list of eligibles but you should be aware that NYPD is under no obligation to hire you.

                                The hiring process of NYPD from taking the written exam to actually being hired is averaging three years from what I am reading on these boards. It is a slow, arduous, difficult process that eliminates an unusually large percentage of aspiring candidates for one reason or another. Patience is a virtue in this business so you might want to look into other law enforcement employment opportunities upstate and out-of-state.
