Processing of 1,500 PNP applications continues

THE Police Regional Office in Eastern Visayas has continued the processing of 1,500 applications for the Philippine National Police (PNP) second cycle regular recruitment with a quota of 450.

“As you can see, there are many applicants but only few are chosen as they pass through the stringent process. All I can say to our aspirants is to be at their best,” said Brigadier General Dionardo Carlos, police regional director.

“Being a police officer is not that easy. One must be determined and passionate enough to be in this profession,” he added.

Lieutenant Colonel Ma. Bella Rentuaya, regional PNP spokesperson, said the processing initially started last June 10, 2019.

Out of 1,500 applicants who registered online, only 1,314 came for a face-to-face interview and were later on endorsed for Body Mass Index (BMI) to the Regional Health Service (RHS), according to Rentuaya.

Of the 1,314 applicants, 947 are males and 367 are females.

She said the Recruitment Section still awaits for the BMI final results before proceeding to the next stage.

“All of these applicants are subject to go through a rigorous process along the way. The recruitment section will soon announce those successful applicants who passed the BMI once readily available,” said Rentuaya.

Oath-taking of all successful applicants is tentatively set on August 16, 2019.

Meanwhile, Rentuaya announced that the online application of the Philippine National Police Academy is set on July 1 until September 30, 2019.

Qualifications are as follows: must be a natural born Filipino; must be 18-22 years old on or before June 1, 2020 (date of take oath); no criminal and administrative records; of good moral character; and must be a senior high school graduate or K12 graduating CY 2020.

Admission test will be conducted on November 10, 2019 to 28 testing centers nationwide.
