  • Appeal Discussion

    Hello everyone. My names JoDee. Born and raised Buffalo, NY.

    So, over the past year I've been going through the ropes for the candidate process for NYSDOCCS. I got a letter about 2 months ago stating I am not considered psychologically suited for the job. Of course it only motivated me more to continue on. My appeal appointment is next week. Has anyone been through it that could give some tips or just a bit of info on what to expect? I was given the address of the Academy and my time and that was it. Its pretty late in the day so i assume it wont be very long. Everyone keeps telling me its a waste to drive 4 and a half hours if its a short appointment. I clearly believe in appearing in person, no matter how far. If anyone has some insight that would be great! Thanks

    I take it you have retained your own shrink, who obtained a copy of the DOCCS psych requirements for the job along with a copy of that agency's psych eval of you, and has then done his own eval and determined DOCCS was in error and that you fit their criteria for the job?

    Or, are you just going up by yourself to say you are a good guy who really wants the job and will be heart broken if you don't get it?

    The first option has a chance, the second one is a waste of time.
    Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere

      Although L-1 stated the best answer to your question---------------------------------

      This question would be better posed in the NY State area of the forum where there are numerous NY DOCS threads



      In the Big House Corrections Forum where there are a lot of NY State and City Correctional Officers who answer questions

      Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

      My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS
