MANILA, Philippines?Application for new police recruits for 2009 has been extended to meet its 1,000 quota for this year, the National Capital Region police office (NCRPO) said Thursday.
NCRPO director Chief Superintendent Roberto Rosales said that they have extended the recruitment deadline for new policemen from March 30 to April 30 to accommodate the rush of walk-in applicants from different areas in Metro Manila.
NCRPO spokesperson Superintendent Rommel Miranda said the extension would also encourage more people to apply as policemen and give the NCRPO enough time to pick deserving applicants in terms of ?skills, competence, and moral uprightness.?
The NCRPO will continue to activate its city and municipal ad hoc Police Officer 1 (PO1) screening committees, which will process the mandatory minimum requirements and other documents that will be submitted by interested applicants.
Interested applicants should be Filipino citizens, not less than 21 or more than 30 years old, a holder of any Baccalaureate Degree and must be a person of good moral character.
Miranda said that interested applicants must have appropriate eligibilities for PO1 either from the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM), Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC), or the Civil Service Commission (CSC).
Applicants should not have been dishonorably discharged from military employment or on AWOL (absent without leave) or Dropped from Rolls from the PNP (Philippine National Police) service or dismissed for cause from any civilian position in the government.
Applicants should also not have any pending criminal cases in court and must have not been convicted by final judgment on an offense or crime involving moral turpitude, Miranda said.
