DILG to PNP: Fast-track hiring of civilians

Secretary of the Interior and Local Government Mar Roxas today ordered the Philippine National Police (PNP) to fast-track the hiring of civilians or non-uniformed personnel (NUPs) in their organization to boost the number of policemen fighting crimes on the streets.
Roxas issued the order to encourage young, idealistic, and disciplined high school graduates with technical or vocational skills and college undergraduates to join the PNP.
“Patuloy ang ginagawang pagtanggap ng PNP ng mga aplikante. Binibigyan natin ng pagkakataon ang mga may kakayahan na maging lingkod-bayan sa pamamagitan ng PNP at maging bahagi ng kampanya laban sa kriminalidad,” Roxas said.
“Bahagi ito ng mga repormang ipinatutupad ng administrasyon ni Pangulong PNoy at inaasahan namin na hindi palalampasin ng PNP ang pagkakataong ito para palakasin ang kanilang kakakayahan sa laban natin kontra kriminalidad,” he added.
Roxas advised interested applicants to inquire and apply for the vacant positions at the PNP Regional, Provincial or City and Municipal Police Stations near their area.
Roxas, concurrent chairman of the National Police Commission (Napolcom), is confident that with the hiring of more civilians, the PNP will be able to free more policemen from office duty, hence increasing the number of uniformed policemen patrolling the streets.
The PNP has been tasked to hire 7,439 NUPs by June this year, 4,457 of which will replace uniformed personnel equipped with police skills and training but are doing office works, in various police stations across the country.
“Kailangan nating dagdagan ang mga sibilyan para naman madagdagan ang mga pulis na nasa labas at lumalaban para sugpuin ang kriminalidad sa bansa. Magiging malaking tulong ang halos 5,000 dagdag na pulis para panatilihin ang kaayusan at kapayapaan sa mga lansangan,” the DILG chief said.
As minimum requirement, applicants should have completed two years studies in college or high school graduate with relevant vocational or trade course that fits the job requirement. Experience or training is preferred, but not a requirement for hiring.
Remunerations for the highest item, COMPO 2 (Salary Grade 9), include P16,051 monthly base pay; P2,000 monthly PERA; P2,351 monthly for GSIS, PAG-IBIG and PhilHealth; P5,000 uniform and clothing allowance for one year; and 13th Month Pay/Bonus of P21,051.
For the lowest item, CEO 1 (Salary Grade 4), remunerations include P11,181 monthly base pay; P2,000 monthly PERA; P1,879 monthly for GSIS, PAG-IBIG and PhilHealth; P5,000 uniform and clothing allowance for one year; and 13th Month Pay/Bonus of P16,180.
Tasked to protect a population of more than 92 million, the 150,000-strong PNP still lacks the manpower for the organization to achieve the ideal police ratio.
According to the PNP, the current police to population ratio is one policeman for every 700 people. In some areas, the police to population ratio is one policeman for every 1,000 people.
The ideal and international standard police to population ratio is one policeman for every 500 people.
To narrow the gap, the DILG has requested and got the approval of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), initially for the hiring of 7,439 civilian employees for the first batch. The new recruits will be deployed as crime registrars and radio operators for police regional offices, police provincial offices, and police stations.
This year, the DILG will also ask the DBM to approve the hiring of 7,561 more civilian employees for the second batch of NUPs. These personnel will be assigned at the National Support Units of the PNP, such as the Highway Patrol Group, the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, and the Maritime Group.
