Only five slots allotted for PNP lateral entry in CAR
by Harley Palangchao

The Philippine National Police has started accepting applications for lateral entry for would-be police senior inspectors and police inspectors on April 5 with only five slots allotted for the Cordillera regional command.

PNP general headquarters reported there are 560 slots available for lateral entry nationwide with the national support unit based in Camp Crame while the vacancies for lawyers were opened. 

Lateral entry means those with ranks of Police Officer 3 (PO3) can be promoted to inspectors if they passed all the required qualifications.

Applicants will be rated based on education, experience, training, eligibility, physical characteristics, and personality traits required by the police service. 

The PNP reported that the regional police command and national support unit will form their respective ad hoc screening committee to conduct initial processing, screening, and to interview applicants.

The list of applicants will be posted on June 1, to facilitate the qualifying examination. 

The oath taking of those who will fill up the vacancies is scheduled on Nov. 7. 

Since 2008, the PNP made sure that the screening for lateral entry is strictly implemented as many applicants in past two years failed in the preliminary examinations consisting of neuro-tests and physical, medical, and qualifying tests. 

Camp Crame also made it sure that applicants  for the lateral entry must be board passers, have been in the PNP service for three years, and must have obtained at least 70 percent in over-all rating in passing the screening.

While only five slots were allotted for the regular police service in the region, professionals from the Cordillera may apply for the lateral entry as the PNP are in need of nurses, psychologist, pilots, electronics and communications engineers, and chemical engineers.
