THE National Police Commission (Napolcom) approved the renaming of the Philippine National Police (PNP) promotional examination titles in relation to the implementation of the new PNP Rank Classification System.
NAPOLCOM Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer Atty. Rogelio T. Casurao said the Commission en banc approved Resolution No. 2019-477 dated June 14, 2019 renaming of the examination titles of the NAPOLCOM-administered police promotional examinations for the ranks of Police Corporal to Police Lieutenant Colonel.
“Due to the modification of the PNP rank classification under Republic Act No. 11200, the current promotional examination titles are no longer appropriate with the present rank classification, hence, it has to be renamed,” Atty. Casurao said.
The new examination titles and the corresponding rank coverage are as follows: Police Officer 1st Class Examination for Police Major and Police Lieutenant Colonel (formerly Police Superintendent Examination for Chief Inspector and Superintendent); Police Officer 2nd Class Examination for Police Lieutenant and Police Captain (formerly Police Inspector Examination for Inspector and Senior Inspector); Police Officer 3rd Class Examination for Police Master Sergeant, Police Senior Master Sergeant, Police Chief Master Sergeant and Police Executive Master Sergeant (formerly Senior Police Officer Examination for Senior Police Officer I to IV); and, Police Officer 4th Class Examination for Police Corporal and Police Staff Sergeant (formerly Police Officer Examination for Police Officer II and III).
