PNP Needs Doctors, Pilots, Priests

MANILA, Philippines - Lawyer? Physician? Pilot or Priest? The Philippine National Police (PNP) needs you.

Senior Supt. Generoso Cerbo, PNP spokesman, said those professions are among those needed to fill up the 75 vacancies for professionals who wish to join the PNP Officer Corps as Police Commissioned Officers.

"This is part of another round of Lateral Entry screening process to fill authorized vacancies for technical service officers in the National Support Units this year," said Cerbo.

There were originally 98 vacant positions but Cerbo said 23 of them may already be occupied by early birds.

Vacancies available are: four lawyers in the PNP Legal Service; nine Commel officers in the Communication and Electronics Service; 12 Medico-Legal Officers and 20 Forensic & Chemical Officers in the PNP Crime Laboratory; two pilots in the Special Action Force; one Chaplain officer in the Chaplain Service; and 12 Medical Officers and 15 Nurses in the PNP Health Service.

Cerbo said medical doctors, lawyers and chaplains will be appointed to the initial rank of Police Senior Inspector with monthly basic salary of P35,312.00, Cerbo announced.

Successful applicants to other vacancies will be appointed to the initial rank of Police Inspector with monthly basic salary of P32,341.00.

Cerbo said all applicants are required to undergo the mandatory Written Competitive Examination (WCE) and the Physical/Medical/Dental Examinations (PMDE).

To broaden the pool of applicants, the Lateral Entry Program has allowed qualified personnel from other PNP Units to apply for the vacancies, said Cerbo.

"We want to have as much qualified applicants as possible, in order to have wider range of selection, because we want to get only the best and most qualified officers for the job," the official added.
