“For this cycle, no female applicants will be accepted because their slots were already filled in with the excess from the last recruitment program,” she said in a phone interview.

“Applicants who will submit incomplete documentary requirements will not be processed. The PNP online recruitment will only accept documents in jpeg, png, and PDF format” Rentuaya said.

Successful candidates will be appointed to the initial rank of Police Patrolman with a gross monthly salary of PHP29,668 with other mandated allowances and benefits, the PNP said.
