THE National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) announced that 54 senior police officials passed the NAPOLCOM-administered police eligibility examination.
According to NAPOLCOM vice chairman and executive officer Atty. Rogelio Casurao, the successful police officers will be conferred with the Police Executive Service Eligibility (PESE) during the 12th PESE Conferment Rites on December 18 at the Jesse M. Robredo Hall at the DILG-NAPOLCOM Center in Quezon City with Interior and Local Government Secretary and NAPOLCOM chairman Eduardo Ano as guest of honor and speaker.
Supt. Roel DR Flores, officer-in-charge of the Regional Police Community Relations Division (RPCRD), Police Regional Office (PRO) 11 and a member of Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) Kaagapay Class 1996, landed at the top place among the 131 senior police officials who passed the 2018 PESE Validation Interview administered by the NAPOLCOM for the third level ranks in the PNP.
He was followed by a female police official, Supt. Genelle V. Montemayor, while Supt. Ronald Laoyan landed in third place.
In fourth place was Jacinto Malinao Jr. while three officials shared the number 5 spot -- Supts. Gilbert Gorero, Dixon Berango and Maribel Getigan.
“The 54 passers represent 41.22% of the 131 police officials who underwent the validation interview last December 1 and 2, 2018,” Atty. Casurao said.
And while the NAPOLCOM remains committed to continuously cleanse and professionalize the PNP, Casurao said the Commission takes cognizance of the outstanding accomplishments of police officers by promoting those who truly deserve career advancement in the police service.
PESE which has two phases -- the written exam and the panel interview -- is an eligibility requirement for the ranks of Police Senior Superintendent, Police Chief Superintendent, Police Director, Police Deputy Director General and Police Director General.
The PESE tests contain analytical questions on police leadership and police values designed to select the best future leaders in the police service.
