The National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) issued Memorandum Circular No. 2018-002, dated November 8, 2018, which prescribes the guidelines for the processing of lateral entry applications for line and technical positions in the Philippine National Police (PNP).
One of the salient provisions of the NAPOLCOM policy is the prescribed general qualification for Line Service Officers who perform essential and purely police functions, such as law enforcement, crime prevention and investigation, intelligence, internal security operations, and related administrative work. The position now requires a licensed Criminologist or other professions that may be determined by law.
The maximum age for NUP and PNP applicants is 46 years old. On the other hand, civilian applicants must not be more than 30 years old and must be at least 1.62 meters in height for males and 1.57 meters in height for females.
