MANILA, Philippines — The National Police Commission (Napolcom) has allowed the Philippine National Police (PNP) to recruit more professionals coming from various fields to fill in its over 400 vacancies.

Through Resolution No. 2021-0612, the Napolcom has allowed the PNP to recruit several professionals such as doctors, IT experts, and lawyers, among others, through lateral entry into the police service, the PNP said in a statement Tuesday.

“Makatutulong ang mga papasok na bagong medical officers sa pagtugon natin sa banta ng pandemya habang ang mga bagong abogado naman ay makatutulong sa ating kampanya at operasyon kontra kriminalidad,” Eleazar said.

(The incoming new medical officers will help us respond to the threat of pandemic while the new lawyers will help us in our campaign and operations against crime.)

“Ang mga IT experts naman ay maaaring makatulong sa atin para sa mga adjustments na ating gagawin para makasabay tayo sa ‘new normal.’ Makatutulong din sila sa pagsugpo natin sa iba’t-ibang uri ng cybercrime,” he added.

(The IT experts, on the other hand, can help us with the adjustments we are going to make so we can keep up with the ‘new normal.’ They can also help us in our fight against various types of cybercrime.)

The recruitment, the PNP said, is part of its Lateral Entry Programs, the goal of which is to “develop the human resource of the police force.”

The vacancies will be filled up with 163 medical officers for the health service, 20 medico-legal officers for the crime laboratory, 100 legal officers for the legal service, 100 information technology officers, and 51 officers for the anti-cybercrime group, according to Napolcom.

The Napolcom, in its resolution, said the PNP “shall only process applicants for positions which are identified by the PNP with career path; those who are included in the Index of Occupational Services, Occupational Groups, Classes and Salary Grades of the Department of Management; and those with approved qualification standards by the Napolcom and confirmed by the Civil Service Commission.”
