This was announced by NAPOLCOM Vice Chairman and Executive Officer (VCEO) Vitaliano N. Aguirre II as the Commission released the list of successful examinees for both the PNP Entrance (PNPE) Examination and the Promotional Examinations.


The total number of passers is distributed, as follows: 919 passers of the PNPE Examination representing 12.55% of the 7,325 PNPE examinees, and the combined 825 passers constituting 26.42% of the 3,122 in-service police officers who took the PNP promotional examinations.
