Hello all, I've only been a member of this forum for a few hours and I wasn't sure if I should post the following question under this sub-forum, or the one regarding background checks/hiring process. So if I'm in the wrong section, I apologize and please feel free to move this thread.
Anyway, as I mentioned in my introduction thread I'm interested in working for NYPD. The only problem is that when I was younger I was on anti-depressant medication (fluoxetine) for a few years. I was wondering if this would hinder my chances at being hired, or if it would completely crush them all together. I'm hoping that theres some sort of way I can be cleared of this and possibly reevaluated so that it doesn't come back to bite me. If anyone knows of a timeline, or any chance that they make exceptions on a case to case basis I would really appreciate your feedback as I have been stressing over this ever since I've seen that it could become an issue. Thanks in advance.
