Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief, Police General Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar warned police applicants from falling into the money-making rackets of some unscrupulous groups and individuals that they could buy their entry to the police organization.
PGen Eleazar issued the warning after the Integrity Monitoring and Enforcement Group (IMEG) under Police Brig. Gen. Thomas Frias arrested a woman who claimed that she could assist police applicants in this year’s recruitment of more than 17,000 Patrolman/Patrolwoman.
PGen Eleazar identified the arrested suspect as Evelyn M. Aleman, alias Evah Fonda, married, PSSLAI Agent, and a resident of Bicutan, Taguig City. She was arrested in an entrapment at 9PM on Thursday, May 26, in Bicutan Taguig after receiving the money from the poseur applicant amounting to 50,000.
Quoting report from the IMEG, PGen Eleazar said the operation stemmed from the result of the cyberpatrolling of operatives of the Anti-Cybercrime Group (ACG) who monitored that Aleman has been offering assistance to PNP Recruitment Applicants in exchange for money in her Facebook account.
He said Aleman has been asking P50,000 per applicant as payment to secure the passing of Neuro Psychiatric Exam.
The suspect claimed that she was able to help a lot of applicants to enter the PNP and will help until they take the oath. She even boasted that her “pamato” or the person helping her is a doctor with the rank of Police Colonel.
“Sa ating mga aplikante, huwag kayong maniniwala sa mga ganitong klaseng modus. Binago na natin ang kultura ng korapsyon at palakasan sa recruitment system kaya masasayang lang ang pera ninyo,” said PGen Eleazar.
“Sa pamamagitan ng Comprehensive Online Recruitment Encrypting System (CORES) na inilunsad natin kahapon, ang tanging tiket ninyo para makapasok sa PNP ay ang inyong qualifications at ang performance ninyo sa mga evaluation,” he added.
PGen Eleazar also ordered the ACG and the IMEG to further intensify the operations against this kind of modus operandi and to investigate if Aleman has indeed cohorts in the PNP, including her husband who is confirmed to be a policeman.
He also urged police applicants to immediately report to the PNP, through the e-sumbong, any person who would approach and offer them assistance in the recruitment system.
“Bilang mga susunod na pulis, it is a challenge for you now to live up to the expectations of being a policeman. Pulis na tapat, pulis na may integridad, pulis na may pagmamahal at malasakit sa ating PNP,” said PGen Eleazar.
“At sa mga katulad nitong si Evah Aleman, ang pagkaka-aresto niya ay isang patunay na nakatutok kami sa inyo ngayon at sinisuguro ko na mahuhuli kayo at pagbabayarin sa mga kalokohan ninyo,” he added.
The QR Code System will be used to ensure the concealment of the identity of the applicant. Only the applicant’s qualifications will be evaluated in determining if he/she will be accepted in the police force.
It will be utilized in the entire application process of the applicant, including the Body Mass Index and agility test, drug and neuropsychiatric test, and physical, medical and even dental examinations.
Aleman is now under the custody of the IMEG and will be facing appropriate criminal charges.
Philippine National Police (PNP) formally launched its nameless and faceless recruitment process to eradicate influence-peddling in the organization.
PNP Chief, Police General Guillermo Lorenzo T Eleazar graced the launching of the Comprehensive Online Recruitment Encrypting System (CORES) held at the PNP Multi-Purpose Center in Camp Crame, Quezon City on Thursday, May 27. The event was also attended by other senior police officials and members of the academe.
Under this recruitment scheme, a QR Code System will be used to ensure the concealment of the identity of the applicant. Only the applicant’s qualifications will be evaluated in determining if he/she will be accepted in the police force.
“Gusto na po nating tuldukan ang bulok na sistema ng iilang aplikante na kumakapit sa matataas na opisyal ng PNP para lamang makapasok sa organisasyon. Sa ganitong sistema, may korapsyon na kaagad eh. Iyan ang hindi natin hahayaang makapasok sa ating hanay,” Eleazar said.
“We will only accept those police applicants who are most qualified and most deserving. Only the best for the PNP. Walang mukha o pangalang lalabas habang ongoing ang application process at tanging ang credentials niya lamang ang pagbabasehan kung siya ba ay tanggap sa PNP,” he added.
Eleazar again mentioned Patrolwoman Razy Joy Alejandrino who successfully joined the police force even if she had no connections in the PNP. She had to work as a dishwasher and janitress to save money for PUV fare and other expenses in applying.
“Isang halimbawa itong si Patrolwoman Alejandrino na kahit wala kang backer, maaari kang makapasok sa PNP basta’t ikaw ay masipag, matiyaga, at qualified sa aming hanay,” Eleazar said.
The QR Code System will be utilized in the entire application process of the applicant, including the Body Mass Index and agility test, drug and neuropsychiatric test, and physical, medical and even dental examinations.
Recently, the National Police Commission approved the recruitment of a total of 17,314 new police officers for this year so that the organization may replenish personnel losses, increase strength, enhance visibility, and improve the police-to-population ratio for the maintenance of peace and order in the community.
