Cordillera - The Philippine National Police (PNP) said on Friday that it will hire new policemen this year. 

The National Police Commission and the Department of Budget and Management have authorized the PNP to fill-up 17,000 vacancies under its recruitment Program for year 2020. 

These vacancies comprise the 10,000 annual regular recruitment quota and 7,000 additional quota to replace retired, deceased, dismissed, AWOL, and other separated personnel.

"We want the largest pool of applicants that we can muster from which to select only the best and most qualified candidates that will be recruited into the police service," PNP OIC, Police Lieutenant General Francisco F Gamboa said.

Gamboa added that the application is open to "able-bodied Filipino" men and women aged 21 to 30 who want to serve a noble career in the police service.

"The annual recruitment program has taken Philippine law enforcement to a higher level by closing the gap in the police-to-population ratio to within ideal limits set by law," Gamboa added.

He added that successful candidates will be appointed to the initial rank of Police Patrolman with a gross monthly salary of P29,688.00 with other mandated allowances and benefits.

The recruitment is expected to start by next week and prospective applicants are advised to prepare all necessary documents like certifications, clearances and other documentary requirements to speed up the recruitment process according to Maj. Gen. Lydon Cubos, PNP Director for Personnel and Records Management.

All applications may be filed through the PNP Online Recruitment Application System (ORAS) portal at

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

Cubos added that under the system, applications become nameless and faceless entries and are only represented through barcodes while undergoing particular procedures.
