These will serve as the useful foundations that the succeeding administrations can use and build on during their terms,” Secretary Año said.

For its timely resolution of clients’ concerns in CY 2021, the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) received a commendation from the Office of the President – 8888 Citizens’ Complaint Center (8888 CCC).

In a letter signed by Director Bernadette B. Casinabe, Head of the 8888 CCC, the NAPOLCOM was lauded for acting in a timely manner all the 153 tickets of clients’ concerns received from January 1 to December 31, 2021.

For NAPOLCOM Vice Chairperson and Executive Officer (VCEO) Alberto A. Bernardo, the recognition reflects the Commission’s commitment in providing efficient, effective, and responsive service to the public.

“We wanted the NAPOLCOM to be responsive to the community. We show to the public that we can be reached out by any means – we have the #8888, the email, our telephones”, Vice Chairperson Bernardo said.

Established in 2016, the 8888 CCC serves as a mechanism for citizens to report their complaints and grievances on acts of red tape as defined under Republic Act No. 9485, as amended by RA No. 11032, and/or corruption activities of any national government agency and other government corporation, financial institution, or instrumentalities.

President Duterte appoints new NAPOLCOM Commissioner

On February 14, 2022, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte appointed former Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Undersecretary Edilberto Dela Cruz Leonardo to become one of the Commissioners of the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM). Commissioner Leonardo, who represents the law enforcement sector, shall serve a six-year fixed term. His appointment was issued to replace former Commissioner Felizardo M. Serapio, Jr. whose term of office ended on February 11, 2022.

Prior to his appointment to NAPOLCOM, Commissioner Leonardo was the Undersecretary for Protected Areas and Special Concerns of the DENR while serving as the concurrent Executive Director of the Anti-Illegal Logging Task Force.

Commissioner Leonardo also served as the former Regional Chief of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group Regional Field Unit of Police Regional Office 11 until his retirement from the police service on September 29, 2020.

During his oathtaking, Commissioner Leonardo expressed a mixed feeling of enthusiasm and eagerness to take on the challenge as the newly appointed NAPOLCOM Commissioner.

“All I can say is I will do my best at least to approximate the gold standard set by NAPOLCOM under the good leadership of Secretary Año and able stewardship of Vice Chairman Aguirre II. From this day onwards, I will work vigorously with the same zeal and dedication I have done in my previous professional engagements despite of the demanding and challenging tasks ahead of me,” Comr. Leonardo said.

He also stressed his respect in government service, regardless of form and substance which, he believes, should be carried out with a deep sense of honor, pride, and commitment.

At present, the NAPOLCOM is chaired by DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año with Vice Chairman and Executive Officer (VCEO) Vitaliano N. Aguirre II, Commissioner Job M. Mangente, Commissioner Zenonida F. Brosas and Commissioner Leonardo, as regular members, and PNP Chief Police General Dionardo B. Carlos as ex-officio Commissioner.

“Taking into consideration the COVID-19 cases in the areas where the examinations are to be administered, the concerned Regional Office reserves the right to limit the number of examinees to be accommodated.

The OLEASS allows PNPE and Promotional Examination applicants to choose the examination center where they want to take the examination regardless of their place of residence.

The PNPE Examination is open to all Filipino citizens who are not more than 30 years old and bachelor’s degree holder. Patrolmen/Patrolwomen whose appointments are temporary for lack of appropriate eligibility are also required to take said entrance examination.

On the other hand, the Promotional Examinations are open exclusively to all qualified uniformed members of the PNP who meet the minimum qualification standards for examination in terms of rank and eligibility.

VCEO Aguirre II said that an examinee who fails in an examination, or after being admitted to take said examination, fails to take it for one reason or another, need not resubmit the requirements in the event he/she applies to take the same examination in the same examination center. In such cases, the applicant will only have to: submit the ADMISSION SLIP of the last examination applied for; fill out a new application form and index card with ID pictures; and pay the examination fee.

A total of 18,179 new police officers will be recruited by the Philippine National Police (PNP) for the current year.

This was announced by National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) Vice Chairman and Executive Officer (VCEO) Vitaliano N. Aguirre II, after the NAPOLCOM En Banc, headed by DILG Secretary and NAPOLCOM Chairman Eduardo M. Año, approved Resolution No. 2022-0050, dated January 31, 2022. Said Resolution grants PNP Chief Police General Dionardo B. Carlos the authority to recruit 1,000 Patrolmen and Patrolwomen for regular recruitment and 17,179 Patrolmen and Patrolwomen for attrition recruitment.

“The Commission approved the PNP’s CY 2022 Regular and Attrition Recruitment Program for Patrolmen and Patrolwomen, which will be implemented in two (2) cycles, considering that the distribution is based on police-to-population ratio; peace and order condition; and the actual demands of the functional area,” VCEO Aguirre II said.

The 17,179 attrition recruitment quota shall be distributed to the Offices/Units of the PNP in order to replace uniformed personnel losses due to separation from the service by means of retirement, resignation, death, dismissal from the service, and absence without leave. On the other hand, the 1,000 regular recruitment quota is intended to increase uniformed personnel strength; enhance police visibility; and improve the police-to-population ratio and peace and order condition in operational areas covered by the respective PNP Offices/Units.

This year’s attrition and regular recruitment quota shall be distributed to the Police Regional Offices (PROs), as follows: PRO 1- 200; PRO 2- 200; PRO 3- 800; PRO 4A- 200; PRO 4B- 400; PRO 5- 200; PRO 6- 300; PRO7- 600; PRO8- 600; PRO9- 200; PRO10- 400; PRO11- 300; PRO12- 200; PRO13- 600; PRO Cordillera- 200; PRO BAR- 400; NCRPO- 7,319; and MILF/MNLF- 1,460.

For the National Support Units (NSUs), the following is the allotment of the attrition and regular recruitment quota: Anti-Cybercrime Group- 200; Anti-Kidnapping Group- 100; Aviation Security Group- 100; Communications and Electronics Service- 200; Criminal Investigation and Detection Group- 200; Forensic Group- 200; Explosive Ordnance Disposal and Canine Group- 100; Engineering Service- 100; Highway Patrol Group- 200; Health Service- 400; Headquarters Support Service- 200; Intelligence Group- 100; Information Technology Management Service- 100; Legal Service- 100; Maritime Group- 600; National Police Training Institute- 200; PNP Retirement and Benefits Service- 200; Police Security and Protection Group- 200; and Special Action Force- 100.

VCEO Aguirre II stressed that all accomplished Psychological Assessment Test (PAT) forms shall be sealed in an envelope in order to preserve the integrity of PAT results and ensure that all information therein have not been altered. Likewise, in order to consider the validity of the PAT before publishing its results, the sealed envelope shall be opened and the result shall be published under the presence and supervision of NAPOLCOM and PNP representatives.

Further, VCEO Aguirre reiterated that Chiefs of PNP Offices/Units and members of the Recruitment Screening Committee (RSC), including the head and members of the Secretariat, are required to strictly observe and comply with the rules and regulations in the recruitment, selection and appointment of Patrolman and Patrolwoman, as provided under NAPOLCOM Memorandum Circular No. 2021-001. They are also obliged to follow the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) Guidelines. More importantly, the RSC must strictly follow the “sequential step” in the processing of the applications wherein only those who passed the previous stage shall be allowed to undergo the succeeding processes.

“NAPOLCOM and PNP officer/personnel who shall fail to strictly observe and comply with this Resolution and other pertinent policies shall be dealt with under existing rules and regulations; they shall be immediately relieved; and they shall not be designated to any position of major responsibility,” VCEO Aguirre II said.

On the Payment of Disability and Death Pension for January 2022

As part of the NAPOLCOM’s efforts to efficiently streamline the payment of Disability and Death Benefits, a letter was sent to the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) seeking clarification and guidance on whether the corresponding funds for FY 2022 will still be released to the Philippine National Police (PNP). In its reply dated December 7, 2021, the DBM stated that the funding requirements for FY 2022 were still programmed under the PNP Pension and Gratuity Fund. Thus, the same will still be released to the PNP, but disbursements shall be made by the NAPOLCOM. Furthermore, it suggested that a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on the matter between NAPOLCOM and PNP be executed.

In compliance with the suggestion of the DBM, the NAPOLCOM and PNP have prepared a MOA that will cover the immediate transfer of funds, once the same are released by the DBM to the PNP, for the payment of Disability and Death Benefits for FY 2022.
