These are: Job Knowledge; Communication Skills; Emotional Quotient; Level of Moral Development; Multi-Factor Leadership Quotient; and Creative Development Management.

“PESE contains analytical questions on police leadership and police values in order to get the best future leaders or the cream of the crop in the police service,” Escueta said.

NAPOLCOM Chairman Robredo leads 2010 crime prevention week kickoff ceremony

September 1, 2010

National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) Chairman Jesse M. Robredo will lead some 1,000 students, family groups, business sectors, schools and non-government organizations (NGOs) in the pledge of change (Panata ng Pagbabago) on September 1, 2010 to be held at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Heritage Park, Camp Crame, Quezon City to mark the start of the 2010 National Crime Prevention Week (NCPW) celebration.

According to Interior and Local Government Secretary and NAPOLCOM Chairman Robredo, the pledge of change is in line with the call of President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III to adopt the right path (landas na matuwid) as a way of life for every Filipino.

The occasion will also be highlighted by an ecumenical prayer for peace, simultaneous blowing of whistles and releasing of doves.

The NCPW, which is observed annually every first week of September, is now on its 16th year with the theme “Komunidad at Pulisya, Magkasama tungo sa Pag-unlad ng Bayan,” and slogan, “Ako, Ikaw, Tayong Lahat Labanan sa Krimen!” 

Chairman Robredo said that the observance of NCPW is an opportunity to highlight the collaboration of the various government agencies and nongovernment organizations particularly in the development of comprehensive community-based crime prevention programs.

“To attain significant gain in the government’s crime prevention programs, there is a need to strengthen the role of the police in harnessing community participation in crime prevention to proactively address the problems on violent crimes, drug abuse and deteriorating quality of life in communities,” Robredo said, adding that, “The police have a critical role to play in community safety and economic development of communities. Thus, police capabilities should be built through leadership training and intervention programs among law enforcement and local government agencies.”

One continuing significant project for this year is the Awareness Drive on Crime and Drug Abuse Prevention and Control in selected schools and universities in Metro Manila aimed to make the students and teachers more aware on crime prevention, and for them to take active involvement in the prevention of crimes commonly committed inside and outside the school campuses.

NAPOLCOM Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer Eduardo U. Escueta said that the Commission, through the NCPW Technical Working Committee composed of representatives from government agencies and NGOs, has lined up various programs and activities that will enhance public appreciation of crime prevention as a way of life.

Escueta said that the organizing group has jumpstarted the 2010 NCPW celebration with a series of information and publicity campaign such as radio/TV guestings, and distribution of flyers, leaflets in malls and LRT stations in Metro Manila as early as August.

“All these activities aim to draw out the active participation and involvement of the community, in government’s anti-criminality campaign, for an improved socioeconomic development,” Escueta said.

Other significant activities scheduled during the week-long celebration are Ugnayan ng Mamamayan at Pulisya sa Metro Manila in Camp Crame, Quezon City (September 3); Student Crime Prevention Committee (SCPCs) Convention, in Imelda Roces Hall, NAPOLCOM (September 6), and Closing Ceremony at the NAPOLCOM Office (Sept. 8).

“Several demand letters have been sent to the subject officials and employees but no response have been received from them so far,” Escueta commented

The NAPOLCOM assured the Office of the Ombudsman that in no time these unliquidated cash advances will be paid because the Commission is exhausting all available means to locate the accountable officers.

The NAPOLCOM will also seek guidance from the Office of the Ombudsman particularly on matter of filing administrative and/or criminal charges against individuals who will fail to liquidate their cash advances.

NAPOLCOM sets new guidelines for dropping from the rolls of PNP members

June 11, 2010

The National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) recently approved Memorandum Circular No. 2010-001 amending Sections 9 and 10 of NAPOLCOM Memorandum Circular No. 95-017 entitled: “Prescribing Guidelines Governing the Personnel Action of Dropping from the Rolls of Officers and Non-Officers of the Philippine National Police (PNP) for Incurring Absences Without Official Leave/And Unauthorized Absences”

“The PNP informed this Commission that very few PNP members who were dropped from the rolls complied with this prescribed reglementary period due to insufficiency of time to prepare a substantial pleading for the filing of their motion for reconsideration or appeal,” Escueta said.

Vice-Chair Escueta said that in order to provide full opportunity to concerned PNP members who were dropped from the rolls to exhaust all possible administrative remedies to determine the merit of their dropped from the rolls cases and make rules consistent with the Civil Service Rules, there is a need to amend Section 9 (Filing of Motion for Reconsideration) and Section 10 (Filing of Appeal) by extending the period of their filing, and to allow the appeal of the Dropped from the Roll Orders of the Chief PNP to the Secretary of the Interior and Local Government (SILG).

Under the NAPOLCOM approved memorandum circular, a PNP member will now have fifteen (15) days from receipt of the Order of Dropped from the Rolls, to file a Motion for Reconsideration (MR) with the authority who issued the Order, which shall be resolved within the same period. 

If the MR is denied by the PNP Regional Director, or other authorized PNP officers, the concerned PNP member may file an Appeal to the Chief PNP within fifteen (15) days from receipt of the Order of Denial. The Chief PNP shall have the same period to resolve the appeal. The Notice of Appeal shall be filed before the authority who issued the Dropped from the Rolls (DFR) Order.

An Order of Dropped from the Rolls issued by the Chief PNP, or his decisions denying an  Appeal from DFR Order shall be appealable to the Secretary of the Interior and Local Government (SILG) within fifteen (15) days from receipt of the Dropped from the Rolls Order or Decision denying the appeal. The decision of the SILG shall be final.
