To all those who are interested into entering the police force of the country through the Philippine National Police, the NAPOLCOM or National Police Commission has released a press statement about the upcoming October 2010 Napolcom PNP Entrance Exam. Here is the text:
NAPOLCOM sets police exams on October 2010
The National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) announces the nationwide conduct of the PNP Entrance and Promotional Examinations on October 24, 2010. The period of filing of applications will start on August 16, 2010 to September 30, 2010.
NAPOLCOM Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer Eduardo U. Escueta pointed out that the successful examinees of the entrance examination will be conferred by the NAPOLCOM the PNP Entrance Eligilibity which is appropriate for the appointment to the rank of Police Officer 1. Also, those who will pass the promotional exam shall be conferred eligibilities appropriate for promotion to the ranks corresponding to the exam’s Eligibility Rank Coverage (ERC).
The PNP entrance test is open to civilians who are bachelor’s degree holder, not more than 30 years old, 1.62 meters tall for male and 1.57 meters for female. The PNP entrance exam is also a requirement for PNP officers with temporary status as Police Officer 1 to have a permanentappointment in the police service. On the other hand, the promotional exam is open to all qualified uniformed members of the PNP, i.e. the Police Officers, Senior Police Officers, Police Inspectors and Police Superintendents.
Escueta stressed that the Commission has adopted a new procedure in the processing of applications for all NAPOLCOM given exams, wherein the picture of the applicant will be permanently printed in the application form and notice of admission. The new procedure requires all applicants to file personally at the NAPOLCOM regional offices.
“The new rule will further protect the integrity of the exams by preventing substitution committed by unscrupulous examinees,” Escueta said.
Civilian applicants must bring (a) two legal size window envelopes, (b) two (2) mailing stamps worth nine pesos (Php 9.00) each, (c) transcript of scholastic records or diploma and (d) birth certificate. For the PNP member, the name tag should indicate the rank before the first, middle and last names; and those with temporaryappointment should submit a certified true copy of Attested Appointment, Plantilla Appointment or Special Order. The applicants for the Promotional Exam should submit the first four (4) requirements mentioned above, and the certified true copy of Attested Appointment, Plantilla Appointment or Special Order and a Report of Rating/Certification issued by the NAPOLCOM Central Office, CSC Certified Copy of Eligibility and/or PRC Board Certificate.
Escueta also emphasized that an examinee of the entrance exam who fails in an exam or after being admitted to take the said exam, fails to take it for one reason or another, need not resubmit the requirements should he/she apply again for the same exam in the same exam center. The applicant will only have to submit the admission slip of the last exam applied for, fill out a new application form and index card with ID picture, and pay the examination fee of Php 400.00.
In view of resource constraints, the regional office reserves the right to limit the number of examinees it will accommodate. Acceptance of applications shall be on a “first-come, first-serve” basis and, upon notice, may be stopped even ahead of the deadline.
Application forms can be obtained for free at the NAPOLCOM-NCR office at Jacinta Bldg. 2 1840 Sta. Rita St. Guadalupe Nuevo, Edsa, Makati City, at any of the NAPOLCOM regional offices nationwide or can be downloaded at www.napolcom.gov.ph.
Examination fee is Php 400.00 for the Police Officer Exam, Php 450.00 for the Senior Police Officer Exam, Php 500.00 for the Police Inspector Exam and Php 600.00 for the Police Superintendent Exam.
“The exam coverage for the PNP entrance test consists of general information, verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning and logical reasoning; while the promotional exam includes general information, police administration, police operations and police values and ethical standards,” Escueta added.
