  • NYPD Reinstatement

    I figured I add this post to inform people who are considering coming back to NYPD. This applies primarily to UMOS who resigned with permission of the police commissioner and are off probation.

    The first step is to write a 49 to the PC requesting to be reinstated to previous rank. Things to include are your date of resignation, tax number, where you work now and if you still work for them, and along with reachable contact information. You mail the typed letter to: 1 Police Plaza, Rm 1400, New York, NY 10007 ATTN: Reinstatement.

    It takes a few weeks before a Sgt (your reinstatement investigator) contacts you via your contact information on the 49. Included in the email would be a reinstatement packet which you need to complete before you meet your investigator. This packet is similar to the initial booklet we had to fill out when we got ON THE JOB. It is a whole lot easier because you only add information since you left the department. In this email it lists certain APD forms that have to be notarized for the meeting. You will also have to bring a $75 money order for fingerprints which is done at the meeting with the investigator at 1PP.

    The investigator will also request you to call him/her in the initial email to schedule for a medical screening appointment along with a meeting with him/her on the same day as the medical. (very flexible)

    Medical appt: Its now held at the Old Academy. When you get there and finish all the security screening, go up to the front desk and tell them you are there for a reinstatement medical. This is different so you don't have to be mixed in with the candidates there for their mini-med or medical to get ON THE JOB. Someone from the medical division will be assigned to you and they know that you are supposed to be there for the reinstatement medical. This is relatively an appt. of few hours (+/-2 Hrs) nothing like the 6+ hrs medicals at Lefrak. You are likely to be the only reinstatement for the appt. They test you for hearing, vision, and EKG. They will also shave/cut hair for the drug test. Youvwill fill out a few medical forms in regards to medical information after you got hired including LODs etc.

    side note: you will hear stories about cops who did the process wanting to come back from PAPD, MTA PD, Troppers and out of state/local LE agencies or what not. You are not the only one wanting to come back to THE JOB. You can also be put on medical review, be aware!!

    After this most likely you have to meet your Inv. down at 1PP with the reinstatement packet, notarized forms and money order. Another quick appointment as long as you have filled out all your paperwork competently. You get your fingerprints done here. After your meeting with the inv. he/she will forward your CPI/personnel file to PYSC for scheduling.

    Within a week or two you will get a call from Psyc assessment to schedule you for a written and oral psych (same day). They are not really flexible here but will work with you, generally your appt is a few weeks after the scheduling call.

    Psyc appt: YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE WHOLE WRITTEN PYSC AND ORAL PYSC all over again just like a candidate trying to get on. Have all your prior job/education information and what not. Its not like the medical. This was the most draining thing in the process.

    After this you pretty much wait for brass or who ever that makes a decision to hire you. You simply get a phone call stating to get sworn-in likely the next day at 1PP with a chief. You are told to resign from your current job before swear-in. Also voucher your guns before. You get assigned you permanent cmd this day, from what I hear you can go back to your old cmd or a new one depending on availability. This day you go to NYCPPF and Health benefits section to do paperwork there.
    Then you are assigned to the New Academy for refreshers. (2weeks)

    So this is the process. I believe if you finish the process before a year (regardless of when you get re-hired/sworn-in) you get to keep your tax number, seniority and pay where you left off from. Anything after you are a new tax number.

    Don't wait till the beginning of month 12 after you left NYPD to write your 49 to come back. The process takes a while. Make your decision wisely and know that you are not the only one who has done this before. Lesson learnt: The grass is not always greener on the other side. Pay no mind to the people who say you are crazy to come back and your current job is better and what not. You are doing this for YOU!!

    Be Safe!!

    Useful information to say the least. I know personally that I debated coming back a few times. That 12 month window was good and bad.. it could take a few months to really figure out if you like or hate your new job. I found it most helpful to write out a list of all the reasons why you want to leave and if you end up pulling the pin, Re-read the handy list you made before you decide to come back! It was the first time I realized why people go back to abusive relationships LOL.

    But in all honesty, everyone's circumstances are different and people do frequently decide to come back. Ive been out too long at this point to come back but it's better off that I didn't. If I had more than 12 months to reapply, I probably would have considered coming back more seriously

            Interesting that you posted this, as I just was recently reinstated. I had left for a department in another state but financially it was in turmoil. I am thankful I was given the opportunity to come back. The city may not be the best in terms of quality of life, but as far as job security and a secure retirement it is for sure at the top of the list.

            You are correct, I kept my tax # and the step in which I left at.

              I apologize for bringing an older thread back to life, I just had a few questions in regards to the reinstatement process. I left the department in good standing and permission from the PC a few months ago with about 3.5 years on the job. While there was easily alot to complain about the job there was also alot of good things about the job as well. I left for a Federal leo position, and at the time for me it was an easy decision to leave the PD because it was a huge increase in quality of life and also a slight bump in pay. Now I find myself second guessing my decision and as crazy as it sounds I miss being in the streets and dealing with the bs and 20+ jobs a day. I know the opportunity to be reinstated is a privilege, and not a guarantee. My question is just seeing who has actually successfully been reinstated and what there thoughts are now being back in the department. Obviously everyone has their own reasons for leaving and coming back to the department, I'm just trying to get some insight. Also, at which point during the reinstatement process do you find out which command you would be going to? Would using a hook at this point help with placement or command selection? From what I understand if you are reinstated before the 12 month period you will keep your old tax number, just curious would your shield number and reference number also remain intact as well? Lastly, is there a new probationary period after being reinstated? Thanks in advance for any input.

                I can't speak on the whole reinstatement but you shouldn't ever second guess yourself. I personally think you made a good choice . Best of luck!

                  BXNYPD07 you get to keep shield number. i honestly dont know that reference number ur talking about. there is a probation period of one year, its a bs probationary period. cmd assignment happens the day you get sworn in. the sgt and the civilian that oversee reinstatements are really nice and look out. you shouldnt have a problem going back to where u resigned from unless u had issues there or dont want to go back there. the paperwork goes to ur old cmd CO. Good luck!! ur not alone, many ppl have come back....

                    You keep your reference number forever regardless of what city agency you are employed for and regardless of what title. The reference number is used on OT slips / for payroll purposes.

                      The urge to come back is tough, and I can almost understand it.. I left almost 4 years ago and still find myself thinking every once and awhile what it would have been like if I had stayed.. never left.. or even left and came back.. there is a certain kind of kinship within the NYPD that I don't think I've really seen matched in the other police departments I've joined since I left. But I also am reminded of the improvements in life by leaving.. simple things like watching the Thanksgiving parade at home on TV with my young son, or just being lucky enough to have off on 4th of July etc and knowing that I would have probably been at work if I were working in NYC, stuck on some detail on my feet for 12 hours.. or whenever there's a clearly justified use of force but the NYC media, politicians and whoever else are demanding you be tried for a capital offense. It's not to say that things like this don't happen outside the city, but NYC takes the cake when it comes to cop hating. Sometimes I almost find myself saying the new job is too quiet but I am quickly brought back to reality to the days where I couldn't wait to GTFO of there. Financially does it make sense? Not just the present but for the retirement? NY really did themselves in when they adopted Tier 3 back in 2009. The tough part is having to make up your mind in a relatively short time, it takes sometimes almost a year to really know if you like your new job and you would have probably already needed to start getting your ducks in a row to come back to nypd before you know enough about the new job. I found myself doubting my decision at times simply out of hating change or being out of my comfort zone.. or regretting the decision because I lost some seniority or perks by leaving.

                      Another strange thing is that I often find myself feeling embarrassed for NYPD cops now that I'm gone. It's almost snobbish or equivalent to an out of body experience. the job treats most people in the rank of PO as if they were children.. many people are in terrible physical shape and have no command presence.. any independent decision making in the field is stripped away.. the lack of access to training..

                          Now that I look back on it, I should of definitely left years ago when I had the opportunity. Being single, kool aid pumping through my veins...NYPD was the best there is, living at mom's house. For family life & financial stability...well you know the drill.
                          I'm too far along now to go elsewhere & in too good of a spot I won't get into working for other agencies...but if I was once again with 5 years OTJ, it'd be an easy choice with what I know now.

                            Im with you 100%, except I did leave, and while my new gig has a great schedule and a take home I wish I left at 5 and I wish I went south.
