  • Chance of joining NYPD after being Arrested, but charges dropped.

    Good morning,

    I was active duty military, and I legally purchased an assault rifle in the state in which I was stationed. I received an honorable discharge, and moved back home to Connecticut. I was arrested and charged with 5 felonies: Illegal possession of an assault rifle and having 4 high capacity magazines. The prosecutor and judge decided to drop the charges, because it was an honest mistake, and ignorance of gun laws, and it was not anything felonious or malicious. I am just wondering if anyone can tell me, my chances of being hired by NYPD or NYS Courts? And yes, I know that I was wrong for not knowing the gun laws, and take full responsibilities for my actions, no if's, and's or but's about it.

    No one can predict with certainty, but I'd say your chances are good, especially with NYPD. Chances are just as good that you'll then be looking to leave about 6 months after you graduate the academy if not sooner, lol.

      You hit the nail on the head! If i had the knowledge I had now joining the NYPD, I would have went to another state to process for PDs from square one. I cannot wait until I leave for another job. I wish others would understand how truly bad quality of life is in the NYPD.

    Just curious how your arrest came about. Did you take the rifle to a public range?

      It’s sad to say but I agree. A close family friend recently told me that her son started the NYPD academy. I watched this kid growing up so I’m genuinely happy for him but another half is like dang,not NYPD. And that is a shot at the NYPD. It’s a shot at NYC leaders and mayor and NYS legislators and governor. They’ve created such a toxic city and state and have made the job 100 times harder and dangerous

          The difference is that NYPD is located in one of the most liberal cities in the country. A city cares more about the perps then it’s own officers. Even though this bail reform has cuffed police from doing the job across the state, De Blasio and the NYC council have done more to show their disdain for its officers. Exactly why the officers have literally turned their backs on De Blasio. This is just my opinion of course.

            I have no idea. You’d have to ask a trooper. Although I doubt since they don’t answer to the mayor or the city council.

            btw,I’m not a trooper. Don’t let the name fool you. It’s just the name of the greatest trooper ever.

                FYI for those on the job with NYPD and on probation, be careful what you say on public forums, especially if you are being critical of your employer.

                That advice goes for everybody in general

                  How could they track you down though? Unless you say your command and the time you work. IAB people would have to post regularly here. This ain’t like THEE RANT where it is a free for all.

                  It's very easy to track someone down based upon IP address.

                  Highwaybob I see...but expose some disgruntled employee complaining about his bosses on the internet...seems highly unlikely...IAB wouldn’t waste their time on that...unless said cop was a perp...

                  So and so from Brooklyn north 4x12 said sergeant is very ugly...report him to IAB and get him fired...seems plausible...not...really

                  I promise you agencies as big as the NYPD have entire departments that track and investigate online presence of its officers. In fact, when you go through the NYPD process they have you log into all your social media and they browse what you post.

                  Just because IAB doesn’t post regularly doesn’t mean they aren’t actively searching these boards.

                  Given enough time on a Sunday afternoon, the average joe could find out who you are using basic search techniques.

                  And it may seem unlikely that IAB will investigate “disgruntled employees”, but it has been done before

                An NYPD investigation will want to look into any arrest even if case is dropped. Their investigators will decide if you should proceed in the process.

                  I agree. All depts now have social media policies. Few people at my job lost days and got suspended over the last couple years because of social media

                    You had the gun in your car during a domestic? To be honest, you will have a harder time explaining the traffic tickets rather than the guns you kept from the military.

                    Like many previously have said, the city sucks and everything Patriot91 said is true. Get in, and get out.

                      I think you are getting me confused with the other guy. I didn't have any domestic violence incidents or traffic tickets ever in my life.

                      You are naive at best and an idiot at worst If you think departments don’t do that.

                      How many agencies have been in the news because of the dumb things their officers post on Facebook/instagram/OFFICER.COM? What happened to those officers?

                      You are a public servant in the public eye, you can easily get disciplined for “conduct unbecoming of an officer” for your social media footprint.

                      Additionally, it’s a perfect way to torpedo a promotion if it’s discovered you spoke ill of your superiors.

                      In this day and age, it’s better to not write discoverable things on the internet, despite how insignificant YOU think it is.

                        I posted 7 hyperlinks but the post says “unapproved”, probably due to the amount of hyperlinks in one post.

                        If the post isn’t visible, PM me and I’ll gladly email them to you.
