Monday, October 8, 2012
MANILA -- The National Police Commission (Napolcom) invalidated on Monday the results of 387 aspiring cops who committed cheating in last year's police examinations.
Eduardo Escueta, Napolcom vice-chairman, said the commission analyzed answer patterns of all successful takers of the April 17, 2011 entrance exams of the Philippine National Police (PNP) based on reports of massive cheating in some of the testing centers in Mindanao.
"After analyzing the answer patterns, the Commission found that 387 examinees were found to have a high percentage, ranging from 50% to 100%, of homogenous wrong answers," said Escueta.
The police service eligibility of the 387 examinees shall now be nullified pursuant to the provisions of Napolcom Memorandum Circular 2000-007.
Based on the same document, Escueta added that the examinees who were proven of committing cheating shall be barred from taking the PNP entrance exams for a period of three years.
"[T]he Commission is committed to exercise its power and authority by weeding out anyone who undermines the sanctity and integrity of the police examinations," said Escueta. (Emmanuel Louis Bacani/Sunnex)
