First Filipina two-star PNP general joined the force by 'accident'
The first Filipina ever to become a two-star police general entered the force by accident. This much was admitted by Philippine National Police Director Lina Sarmiento, a 53-year-old chemist, who was sworn in on Friday.

In 1990, while attending a former classmate's oath-taking ceremony, the chief chemist of the PNP Crime Laboratory, who was also in attendance, announced that they were in need of chemists.
Quote:
 
"I was then teaching...but I thought I wanted a job that wasn't boring, I wanted something different," said Sarmiento, Director for Police Community Relations (DPCR).

The 53-year old chemist said her promotion to the rank of "PoliceDirector" signifies a "victory for women."

"This is a victory for women in the uniformed service," Sarmiento said in her speech during her promotion. "In the past, it was unusual forwomen to hold key positions in the PNP."

She said that in the past, women were relegated to desk jobs andadministrative tasks and rarely seen in the field, let alone in combat.

PNP planning to outsource process of hiring police officers
By Cecille Suerte Felipe, The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - In the wake of abuses committed by a number of rogue policemen, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Alan Purisima is planning to outsource the process of hiring police officers to ensure a higher level of competence.

Purisima said he wants graduates of education, psychology, social work, mass communications and other professionals to become police officers.

He expressed belief that teachers, psychologists, social workers, journalists, and other professionals could serve the PNP better than criminology graduates.

“I don’t even want criminology graduates to become police officers because they are just fit to become workers at the crime laboratory,” he said.

-------------------------

He said the outsourcing system of hiring policemen could help reduce the reported corruption in the recruitment of police officers, purportedly committed by unscrupulous officials in charge of hiring PNP personnel.

-----------------------

The PNP chief said applicants who bribed their way into the police force would eventually become corrupt because they themselves were victims of corruption.

Before you intend to finish your studies for your intention to join the police, try to exert a bit of a little research from the NAPOLCOM or any reliable agency for this matter if they have still the scheme of considering recruits who pass the age limit of not more then 3 years. During my time the scheme was still in place for as long as you qualify the rest of the requirements. Comes the time you are accepted, your retirement age will be moved forward depending on how many years you pass the age requirement and you will be required to sign an age waiver for retirement.
Hope this help to satiate your desire to join the law enforcement fraternity.

PNoy retains height requirement for PNP
By Aurea Calica (The Philippine Star) | Updated April 2, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Filipinos of a certain height will not be accepted as cops, jail officers or firefighters, as the height requirement for these posts remains.

President Aquino vetoed the bill repealing the height requirement for applicants to the Philippine National Police (PNP), Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), and Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), it was learned yesterday.

In his veto message on the “Act Repealing the Minimum Height Requirement for Applicants to the PNP, the Bureau of Fire Protection, and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology,” Aquino said that height is a necessary physical attribute to perform the duties of policeman, jail officer or firefighter well.

“As raised by the BJMP, jail officers, by the nature of their work in guarding detainees or escorting criminals, must possess the necessary physical attributes to perform their functions effectively. Likewise, public safety is paramount in law enforcement by the PNP as well as in firefighting by the BFP,” the President explained.

“While I recognize the noble intent of this measure to address height equality among these bureaus, I am also seriously apprehensive of the concerns propounded by the PNP and the BJMP on the safety of their personnel in the performance of their duties as well as the public safety in general,” he said.

“A waiver of this qualification is allowed under certain conditions. Hence, the total repeal of the height requirement among these service bureaus is unnecessary,” he added.

Under the Philippine National Police Reform and Reorganization Act of 1998 (Republic Act No. 8551), the Bureau of Fire Protection and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology Professionalization Act of 2004 (RA 9263 as amended by RA 9592), and the Department of the Interior and Local Government Act of 1990 (RA 6975), applicants to these agencies must comply with general qualifications for appointment to the service, including a height requirement of 5 feet 4 inches for males and 5 feet 2 inches for females.

Short people hoping to join the long arm of the law in the Philippines will be left disappointed after President Benigno Aquino vetoed a bill removing height requirements for police on Monday.

The minimum height of five feet, four inches (1.63 metres) for men and five feet, two inches (1.57 metres) for women applying for these jobs, would still apply, Valte said.
She said the police and other agencies already granted height requirement waivers for certain applicants so short people still could get in if they have special qualifications.

Underheight? You can still become a cop...
By Mike Frialde (philstar.com) | Updated July 2, 2013 - 2:14pm

MANILA, Philippines - The National Polic Commission (Napolcom) on Tuesday issued a set of guidelines on the granting of waivers for applicants to the Philippine National Police who do not meet the agency's weight, height and age requirements.

Napolcom Vice Chairman Eduardo Escueta said Memorandum Circular No. 2013-004 was issued after it has been observed in previous recruitments that the recruitment quotas for the different PNP offices and units are not always filled up due to lack of qualified applicants.

Escueta explained that under the existing Napolcom policy, applicants who do not meet the PNP's required age, height or weight can apply for waivers only when the number of qualified applicants falls below the office or unit quota which is determined at the end of the recruitment process.

“In order to have a wider base of applicants whose special qualifications or skills are useful to or needed by the PNP, applicants who possess exemplary aptitude but do not meet the required age, height or weight should be given an opportunity to apply for waiver prior to the official start of or during the recruitment program,” Escueta said.

Escueta said a waiver of the age requirement may be granted provided that the applicant shall not be younger than 20 or older than 35 years of age.

A waiver of the height requirement may be granted to a male applicant who is at least 1.57 meters and to a female applicant who is at least 1.52 meters.

According to Escueta, the minimum height requirement for applicants who belong to indigenous groups, duly certified by the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) or the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP), are 1.52 meters for male applicants and 1.45 meters for female applicants.

Meanwhile, an applicant who is granted a weight waiver shall be given reasonable time but not exceeding six months within which to comply with the PNP's weight requirement.

“Only applicants who possess the appropriate eligibility and meet the general qualifications as provided for under Section 14 of Republic Act No. 8551 are qualified to apply for waivers," Escueta said.

Escueta said applicants for waivers must possess exemplary aptitude to be capable police officers, such as special skills in evidence gathering and safekeeping, cyber crime investigation, detection and prevention, crime scene investigation, martial arts, marksmanship and similar skills; special talents in the field of sports, music or arts and culture; extensive experience or training in forensic science and other legal, medical and technical services; and outstanding academic records and extracurricular activities of applicant during his or her school days, good family background in law enforcement or socio-civic activities, recognized social standing in the community, and awards and commendations received.

All applications for waivers, except for height for members of indigenous groups, shall be evaluated by the PNP Screening Committee and endorsed by the PNP Chief to the NAPOLCOM en banc, through the Office of the Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer, for proper disposition.

The Napolcom Regional Director may grant height waiver for members of indigenous groups with NCMF and NCIP certification under their area of jurisdiction.

Escueta meanwhile reminds PNP applicants that the grant of waivers is not an assurance of appointment into the police service.

“Applicants with waiver will only be considered when the number of qualified applicants falls below the minimum office to unit quota," he said.
