Napolcom Exam Schedule 2020 and Guide for Online Application

The National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) is the agency mandated to administer and control the Philippine National Police.

The National Police Commission conducts two sets of police examinations twice a year:

Promotional– This exam is for those who are already in the police service. The Promotional Examinations are open exclusively to all qualified uniformed members of the PNP who meet the minimum qualification standards for examination in terms of rank and eligibility.

PNP Entrance Exam– On the other hand, this exam is for those aspiring to enter the Philippine National Police. The PNP Entrance Examination is open to all Filipino citizens who meet the age, height, and educational requirements.

Since a lot of people want to become a Police Officer, we will be focusing on the PNP Entrance Exam. In this article, you can read the Requirements, Guide and Application Process for the Admission Test.
