The Philippine National Police (PNP) has established an on-line recruitment system to ease the process of applying for the police force.
Supt. Juvenal Barbosa, assistant chief of the Recruitment and Selection Division of the Directorate for Police Records and Management (DPRM), said the program would also decongest police camps.
“In the past, applicants are required to report personally in all the recruitment offices. But now, all they have to do is to log in to our on-line recruitment application system,” said Barbosa.
Barbosa said applicants have to follow simple instructions specified on the on-line recruitment system on the website of the PNP.
The personal submission of the requirements is no longer required since the system allows the submission of scanned copies of documents.
Applicants would only need to proceed to the recruitment offices if they receive an invitation or notices from the PNP.
“This is to ensure that applicants would not be clogged in the recruitment offices. If they were given schedules, then that is the time that the entire process would begin,” said Barbosa.
He explained that the documents would be subjected to intense screening process whichinclude competition for qualifications with other applicants.
“After the verification of he submitted documents, there would be initial screening which include inspection if the applicants have deformities or tattoos,” said Barbosa.
He explained that the inspection of deformities is not tantamount to discrimination as they only want to ensure that applicants would meet what would be expected of a police officer.
The PNP leadership will be recruiting some 15,000 new police officers this year, nearly 5,000 of them will serve as replacement for those who were sacked, who resigned and would be retiring this year.
