STARTING FEBRUARY 1, applicants for the PNP entrance and promotional exams scheduled on April 29 can access the On-Line Exam Application Scheduling System (OLEASS) of the National Police Commission.

Napolcom vice chair and executive officer Eduardo U. Escueta said the innovative project is the answer to the perennial problem of both civilian and police officers who have been bearing the long queues during the exam application period.

Under the new system, applicants are required to utilize the on-line system to request the Napolcom regional offices for their schedule on the filing of examination application after which they will personally appear only at the date assigned to them, with their printed on-line confirmation letter and other required documents.

The period for on-line scheduling is on February 1 to 13, while February 14 to March 16 is set for the filing of application.

Applicants for the PNP Entrance Exam are required to bring the printed letter-reply confirming the scheduled appointment, duly accomplished form (Napolcom Form 1-A) and Index card provided by the office, three recent and identical 1”x1” colored ID pictures with white background and with complete name tag, examination fee of P400, one legal-sized window envelope with P12 worth of mailing stamps, applicant’s transcript of scholastic records or diploma, and authenticated birth certificate.

On the other hand, applicants for the PNP Promotional Exam are required to bring the following, printed letter-reply confirming the scheduled appointment, duly accomplished form (Napolcom Form 1-A) and Index card provided by the office, two recent and identical 1”x1” colored ID pictures with white background and with complete name tag, one legal-sized window envelope with P12 worth of mailing stamps, certified true copy of attested appointment, plantilla appointment or absorption order, and report of rating/certification issued by the Napolcom Central office, CSC Certificate of Eligibility and/or PRC Board certificate.

The examination fees for the PNP promotional exam are P400 for the Police Officer Exam, P450 for Senior Police Officer exam, P500 for the Police Inspector exam and P600 for the Police Superintendent examination.

The applicants for the PNP entrance exam is required to wear plain white t-shirt (with or without collar) or white polo shirt, dark pants and shoes and a GOA Type B or patrol shirt are required of applicants for the PNP promotional exam.

Napolcom will not accept walk-in applicants who have not gone through the OLEASS.
