PNP Director for Personnel and Records Management, Police Major General Lyndon Cubos advised all prospective applicants to make ready with their clearances, certifications and other documentary requirements to facilitate speedier processing of applications when the recruitment will eventually commence in the coming weeks.

How to apply?

All applications for recruitment may only be filed through the PNP Online Recruitment Application System (ORAS) portal.

“We have adapted this digital information system in recruitment application to level the playing field for all applicants by eliminating opportunities for third party intervention in the rigid selection process,” Cubos said.

“Under this system, all applicants become nameless and faceless entries represented only by barcodes while going thru all the mandatory procedures of tests, interviews, and physical and psychological examinations,” Cubos explained. (PNP-PIO)
