CAMP MARCELO A ADDURU, TUGUEGARAO CITY - Police Regional Office 2 joined the National Headquarters and other police regional offices in the simultaneous launching of "Nameless Faceless Recruitment Process" in relation to the Comprehensive Online Recruitment Encrypting System (CORES) at the PRO2 Grandstand this morning.
Police Brigadier General Crizaldo Nieves, Regional Director personally monitored the launching of said activity to ensure that the guidance of Police General Lorenzo Eleazar, Chief PNP and policies set forth in the PNP recruitment process are properly adhered to. “We are implementing the QR Code System in the PNP Recruitment to guarantee that "Padrino System" will no longer be practiced,” RD Nieves stated in an interview. He also added that it is imperative to start fixing the lapses in the recruitment process to ascertain that only the best and most qualified applicants will be selected.
In addition, Police Lieutenant Colonel Gregorio Tumbali, Assistant Chief, Regional Recruitment and Selection Unit 2 (RRSU2) emphasized that it is important for PNP applicants to know the right and timely information on the requirements for entry to the PNP in order for them to have ample time to prepare for the different stages of the recruitment process.
Out of 1,498 applicants for PRO2, 185 of them reported today for the Body Mass Index assessment while the other applicants are scheduled to report for the same process tomorrow until June 1, 2021. Also, 100 applicants for the National Support Units who were not able to report at the National Headquarters will be screened at this regional office.
The Quick Response Code (QR Code) of applicants who do not meet the normal BMI range will be automatically deactivated and they can no longer proceed to the other stages of the recruitment. Said procedure will also be undertaken in the rest of the stages of the process.
The applicants are also required to present a negative result of their RT-PCR Test and a normal ECG before they are allowed entry to the camp.
PRO2 was alloted a total of four hundred recruitment quota for the first and second semester of 2021.
