The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) is now accepting applicants for the Police Officer 1 (PO1) Recruitment Program for this year.
On the orders of NCRPO chief PDIR NICANOR A BARTOLOME, the NCRPO has started its preparation for the activation of city and municipal ad hoc Police Officer 1 (PO1) screening committees that will process the mandatory minimum requirement and other documents submitted by walk-in applicants.
The NCRPO is looking to recruit 1,120 new police officers.
NCRPO spokesman PSSUPT DIONARDO B CARLOS said that based on existing policies, recruitment for the rank of PO1 in the PNP is open to all qualified men and women with Filipino citizenship, not less than 21 nor more than 30 years old, holder of any Baccalaureate Degree, and with good moral character.
Carlos also said that the PNP is implementing a new recruitment process this year.
“What’s good about this year’s recruitment process is that it has been streamlined for a more thorough evaluation of the applicants,” said Carlos.
Carlos explained that the previous years’ process began with the Physical Agility Test (PAT). Applicants passing the PAT move on to the Neuro-Psychiatric Exam (NP). Upon passing the NP, applicants undergo the Physical/Medical/Dental Exam (PMDE). Then after this screening, applicants take the Qualifying Exam (QE) then the Final Board Interview (FBI).
Carlos said the evaluation and screening of applicants will be more effective with the revised recruitment process.
Under the revised process, after passing the NP, applicants under go the PMDE, PAT, QE and finally, the FBI.
Carlos added that interested applicants must have appropriate eligibilities for PO1 from the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM), Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC), or the Civil Service Commission (CSC).
Also, applicants must not have been dishonorably discharged from military employment or on AWOL or Dropped from Rolls from the PNP service or dismissed for cause from any civilian position in the government.
Applicants must have no pending criminal cases in court and must have not been convicted by final judgment on an offense or crime involving moral turpitude.
Applicants who meet the requirements must prepare an application folder containing duly-accomplished CSC Form 212, birth certificate authenticated by the NSO, report of rating of eligibility authenticated by the issuing authority, two pieces 2x2 black and white picture indicating applicant’s name, transcript of scholastic records and diploma duly authenticated by the school registrar, clearances from Barangay, local police station, courts and NBI, and medical certificates.
