  • Is it possible to apply for the NYPD again after being disqualified?

    I took the exam for the TEA position last spring, scored a 92 and was no.78.7 on the list but a thoughtless past mistake came back to bite me in the butt when they called me in a few months later and I failed the drug test (marijuana). I haven't been able to find any info on whether I can re-apply for the same position or another like SSA. Is there still hope for me or am I done for?

    Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.

      good luck and NO your pretty much done for. Try another state and quit smoking weed. The NYPD is NOT hiring anymore for the next 2-3 years and when they do, its going to be stiff competition
      So, we're allowing students to reply in this section now?

        You must have lost some brain cells if you think less than a year after being disqualified for failing a drug test, that they would accept you.

        Let me guess, you have changed

        Here is an idea, go find a different line of employment because anyone stupid enough to smoke weed while in the application process to be a cop will never be one.

          For some reason, an increasing number of "students" seem to have reading/comprehension issues. Must be something we're not doing right in the classroom.

            To the OP. While I'm not fully conversant with NYPD's hiring standards, it really amazes me that you can test positive for drugs, and think you have a prayer of advancing, or remaining in the process. I suggest you contact NYPD Recruiting for a more specific answer. I'm almost positive you'll be required to wait for a period of time before you can apply again. In that time, you'd be wise to adopt and maintain, a drug free lifestyle. Good luck in your efforts.

                Thanks for the replies. I made a boneheaded move (which won't happen again) and I'm now trying to move past it and get on with my life which I really want to be in law enforcement.

                  It's more than a boneheaded move... A boneheaded move would be something like being in a rush and running a red light.

                  Honestly, I don't think you could have possibly made a worse choice at a worse time.

                        TEA = Traffic Enforcement Agent. Traffic Enforcement Agents are not police officers as defined by the New York State Criminal Procedure Law, nor are the vast majority of them peace officers as defined by the CPL, either (although some Level IV TEA's in Truck Enforcement are peace officers.) Traffic Enforcement Agents write parking tickets, direct traffic in intersections, tow illegally parked cars, etc. SSA, which was also mentioned = School Safety Agent, who are also not police officers, even though like TEA's they are NYPD employees and wear a uniform.

                        Since this is not a police officer position, there is a chance that you could reapply -- but frankly, I would not hire you if I controlled the process, because you clearly have no common sense.

                              I would say you are done, most applications ask if you have ever been DQ and what was the reason. You said you wanted to be in LE, yet during the process you go out and smoke dope.

                              Sorry, but I do not see you becoming a Police Officer,,,,ever.
