PNP axes exam cheats

The Philippine National Police (PNP) has ordered the dismissal from the service of 13 rookie policemen in the Zamboanga Peninsula who were among the 386 recruits accused of cheating in their entrance exams to the police organization.

Chief Supt. Napoleon Estilles, Zamboanga Peninsula police director, on Sunday said the policemen were sacked for dishonesty for manipulating the results of the PNP entrance and promotional examination conducted by the National Police Commission (Napolcom) in Zamboanga City.

More than 350 others were placed under investigation.

Estilles said he issued the order based on a Napolcom resolution revoking the results of the PNP entrance test held on April 17, 2011, after it was discovered that many takers had put down exactly the same wrong answers.

The cheating was uncovered only recently, and those who took the exams had been commissioned into the force.

“Due to this case, the eligibility of the respondents who were already appointed to the police service was revoked as indicated in the dismissal decision,” Estilles said in a statement.

Among those axed were Police Officers 1 Djona Ansing Genorosa, Felix Josephius Pascual, Arian Lloyd Luchana, April Rose Denopol, Grege Lagare, Ralph Shemuel Supnet, Daniel Audy Talpis, Al-Najib Ujaji, Fermuzaina Umda, Joel Espina Aliser, Jilhani Mohaimen Dalongenes, Nohasim Yusop Sakilin and Raymond Sumonglay.

Meanwhile, Estilles ordered the administrative relief of all  45 personnel of the Labuan police station in Zamboanga City for alleged operational lapses in thwarting the kidnapping of a teacher on Nov. 13. Marlon Ramos; AFP

    PULIS PATOLA: ITS MORE FUNNY IN THE PNP.

  • yagit123

    hindi pa pulis nandadaya na…lao na siguro kung nga high school grds lang ang kukuha ng exams na gusto ni mr tulfo..imbis na UPGRADE, gusto ni Purisima, DOWNGRADE…

    wala pa nga sa serbisyo nagtsi-cheat na!? E, mas lalo pa siguro kung nasa serbisyo na! 

    Samantala, isang kaskaserong driver ang nahuling nag-hit ng red light, napahinto ito ng pulls, habang ginagawan ng ticket si driver sabay naman kuha ng wallet ito, at: “sir, hindi pa po ako nagsahod pwede na po ba ito?” okay na nga ang isang daan, sabay haririt ng takbo uli si kaskaserong driver. 

    Habang pinipil-apan ang mga form, tinanong ng di examinee ang sagot sa Sex (ang sagot dito ay M for male and F for female) ang sagot niya ay “everyday”.     ha ha ha tawa naman diyan, o.

    Hala! naku bakit pa kasi binisto, dapat atin atin na lang. Iba talaga kasi kapag marami ang nandaya para maging PULIS sa PINAS para parating sikat sa MEDIA. Ano ngayon? Inggit yung ibang bansa na ang pinakasikat sa atin sa mga MEDIA ay ang mga PULIS na bumaloktot. Alam naman iyan ng nakakataas ang problema kasi kapag ang kamag anak nila o ang inaanak nila ay bumagsak sa pagkaPULIS hindi nila matanggap, kaya dinadaya na lang. Iba ang close family ties ng PILIPINO. Basta ANAK kahit hindi ka qualified, kahit sa anong paraan igagapang kita para maging PULIS ka! Iyan ang kataga ni PAPA.

     Unless our police system undergoes total overhaul and moral renewal, it is not going at any direction. Here it is not only cheating in exams. But there are forms of cheating in their ranks like gambling, criminality, having mistresses, etc. Law enforcement and peace and order will remain elusive if the higher ups are not serious in their sworn duties. Cheating in exams only means they are lazy. And what can we expect of lazy police.

    Parusahan rin yung proctor ng examination….siguradong kakutsaba iyan at may tong-pats mula sa mga nangopyang mga aplikante.

  • Ricgwapo

    This is not surprising! Even a number of police officers are involved in hold-ups and other illegal activities. NO wonder, majority of Filipinos do not trust the police officers, esp. those in the cities.

    Police officers should regularly undergo psych and other test and weed out the undesirables. I have heard from a close friend who worked in East Timor that Filipino officer who serve with the United Nations was dismissed and sent home after attempting to rob a remittance center.

    My friend wondered what happened to the case, if a case was filed against this undesirable officer.

      talagang hindi na dapat masorpresa…
      kung ang tingin natin sa mga kapulisan ngayon ay mga corrupt at sila pa ang manggigipit sa iyo, ano pang aasahan mo sa susunod na herasyon ng kapulisan kung ganitong klase pa din ang mga papalit… sa exam pa lang ay ginagamitan na ng kalokohan.
      kapag nakakapanood ako ng graduation ceremonies ng bagong kapulisan ay hinihintay kong marinig sa guest speaker (madalas ay pangulo ng pilipinas) na tanungin nya ang mga bagong graduates na ilan sa kanila ang magiging bulok na pulis pagdating ng araw.

  • speedstream2

    How can we allow cheats to be part of the PNP? From the get-go, they already show utter disrespect for the law. To give them a uniform, a badge and a gun, and expect them to enforce the law, would be much like spitting on civilized society and its institutions.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VPSXDLCQEZGZDJSX32G7PYHNCI Noel

    It’s been going for a long time.  That means the current cops including those who already retired might have also cheated.

  • nennen12345

    that answers the question kon bakit mga corrupt ang mga pulis natin sa bansa.  dahil sa umpisa palang ng exams mga cheaters na sila.  oh my God, when these corruptions end in the Philippines.

  • joerizal

    “The  cheating was uncovered recently” ==> bullshit matagal na yan
    “The termination board found them guilty of… dishonesty,” ==> talaga yan lang? Bobo talaga itong mga ito. Criminal ang ginawa nila dahil government test materials ang dinaya nila. Kung dishonesty lang eh di sana pinalo niyo na lang sa puwet ang mga yan.
    Kung walang korap, walang mahirap. Di na totoo yan. Sa dami ng naghihirap, dumarami ang korap.
     

  • Batz61

    kaya pala nga bulok or rotten ang police natin…rampant cheating…i’m sure this isn’t only the first time it happened… usual practice na ito, ngayon lang nagkaruon ng whistle blower..

  • Garo Ungaro

    what else is new?..u can see them the way they performed their job descriptions…below par and sub standard not fit to be called police…some is not even aware of the what will be charges are? not even aware of the existing laws …some hides in the power of the badges and guns as they want to be police…but some some has ulterior motives besides being a police…its really sad to be called a police in pinas…no respect for a police…

    It’s a known fact that selling “leakage” to the exam takers have been an ancient trade practices by these corrupt examiners at all levels in the government of this country.It’s a bit surprise why they learned about it just now?, as if whey were born just yesteday. Well,cheating has become an accepted standads in our society,if not,we wouldn’t have any corrupt government officials running this country.

  • Luthmar

    Why this does not surprise me at all.

    POLICE MOTTO – IT IS BETTER TO CHEAT THAN TO REPEAT

  • Pluma Mana

    no wonder the police force is full of misfits kaya maraming krimen ang di nalulutas and the police are just relying on luck in solving crimes.

    kung di dahil sa mga programang imbestigador ng gma at xxx ang abs-cbn, di malalaman ng mga pulis na crimes are happening right under their noses.

    Para sa araw ng pagunita ng pasilang ni Gat. ANDRES BONIFACIO, Inihahandog ang Kartilla ng Katipunan ( aral ng Katipunan):

    Mga Aral ng Katipunan sa Kartilya

    KARTILLA NG KATIPUNAN

    ni Emilio Jacinto

    1. Ang buhay na hindi ginugugol sa isang malaki at banal na kadahilanan ay kahoy (puno) na walang lilim, kundi (man) damong makamandag. 

    2. Ang gawang magaling na nagbubuhat sa paghahambog o papipita sa sarili (paghahangad na makasarili), at hindi talagang nasang gumawa ng kagalingan, ay di kabaitan. 3. Ang tunay na kabanalan ay ang pagkakawang-gawa, ang pag-ibig sa kapwa at ang isukat ang bawat kilos, gawa’t pangungusap sa talagang Katuwiran. 4. Maitim man o maputi ang kulay ng balat, lahat ng tao’y magkakapantay; mangyayaring ang isa’y hihigitan sa dunong, sa yaman, sa ganda; ngunit di mahihigitan sa pagkatao. 5. Ang may mataas na kalooban, inuuna ang (dangal o) puri kaysa pagpipita sa sarili; ang may hamak na kalooban, inuuna ang pagpipita sa sarili sa puri. 6. Sa taong may hiya, salita’y panunumpa. 7. Huwag mong sayangin ang panahon; ang yamang nawala’y mangyayaring magbalik; ngunit panahong nagdaan nay di na muli pang magdadaan. 8. Ipagtanggol mo ang inaapi;kabakahin (labanan) ang umaapi. 9. Ang taong matalino’y ang may pag-iingat sa bawat sasabihin;matutong ipaglihim ang dapat ipaglihim. 10. Sa daang matinik ng buhay, ang mga magulang ang patnugot ng mag-anak; kung ang umaakay ay tungo sa sama, and patutunguhan ng inaakay ay kasamaan din.) 11. Ang babae ay huwag mong tingnang isang bagay na libangan lamang, kundi isnag katuwang at karamay (ng lalaki) sa mga kahirapan nitong buhay; gamitin mo nang buong pagpipitagan ang kanyang (pisikal na ) kahinaan, alalahanin ang inang pinagbuhatan at nag-iwi sa iyong kasanggulan. 12. Ang di mo ibig gawin sa asawa mo, anak at kapatid, ay huwag mong gagawin sa asawa, anak at kapatid ng iba. 13. Ang kamahalan ng tao’y wala sa pagkahari, wala sa tangos ng ilong at puti ng mukha, wala sa pagkaparing kahalili ng Diyos, wala sa mataas na kalagayan sa balat ng lupa: wagas at tunay na mahal na tao, kahit laking gubat at walang nababatid kundi sariling wika, yaong may magandang asal, may isang pangungusap, may dangal at puri, yaong di nagpaaapi’t di nakikiapi; yaong marunong magdam-dam at marunong lumingap sa bayang tinubuan. 14. Paglaganap ng mga aral na ito, at maningning na sisikat ang araw ng mahal na kalayaan dito sa kaaba-abang Sangkapuluan at sabungan ng matamis niyang liwanag ang nangagkaisang magkakalahi’t magkakapatid, ng liwanag ng walang katapusan, ang mga ginugol na buhay, pagod, at mga tiniis na kahirapa’y labis nang matutumbasan.

  • batangsulpok

    Yan ang problema sa PNP na halos nakakapasok ay mga kamag-anak ng mga Pulis din kaya kaniya-kaniyang gapangan o palakasan at siyempre kung may kilalang examiner ay siguradong gagawa ng paraan para makakuha ng leak.

  • imongredneck

    No one not even the lowest of the low life forms is surprised by this headline.

  • robertcarino

    di lang naman PNP.  i once administered a test (di ko na lang sasabihin kung ano… basta it dealt with security) where more than 80% failed.  there were exam takers who didn’t even know what to put under “Name” (no kidding).  there was pressure for the proctors  to revise the test results to pass most if not all.  takot kasi sa itaas that the results would “reflect poorly” on the trainors.  guess what? this happens all over the country.  at magtaka pa kayo kung bakit ganyan bansa natin. we refused to comply. and now we are in the private sector.

    • batangsulpok

      Ang dapat gawin ay bigyan kaagad ng eksamen pagkatapos mag-fill up ng application form ang bawat applicant para maiwasan ang dayaan dahil ganyan ang nangyari sa amin nang kumuha ng AFPGCT test para maging commissioned officer sa PA, no-retake kung bagsak pero noon pang 1967 ang ganitong procedure kaya maraming pagbabago kasi pinagpeperahan yan o corrupt na rin ang mga examiners ngayon.

    cheaters are everywhere, even at the pnti and rts they abound. i had experienced it during some of my in service training. the training staff, in exchange for money will manipulate test and pt results of trainees so they can put a number  trainees on top of the order of merit.

    i don’t know if things would change once the plan to transfer the task of giving basic and upgrading courses to policemen from the ppsc to the pnp ts will push through.

    shot in the dark, that’s for sure.
