MANILA, Jan. 27 – A total of 20,917 newly promoted Philippine National Police (PNP) uniformed personnel were given recognition on Friday before the Flag Lowering Ceremony.

There are 24,735 vacancies to be filled up from PO2 to P/SUPT. Promotion Boards for different ranks were created to process the promotion, deliberation and interview of qualified Police Commissioned and Non Commissioned Officers.
Effective Dec. 31, 2011, orders were issued for the promotion of said PNP Uniformed Personnel.
Uniformed members of the PNP must comply with the four (4) requirements before they are eligible for promotion to the next higher rank. They must have the education, experience, training and eligibility. We want to promote deserving personnel since the organization and the public are concern said PNP Chief General Nicanor Bartolome.

The new resolution said that for 2nd level ranks (Police Officer 1 to Police Superintendent) before they are considered for promotion to the next higher rank they must possess required education, experience, training and eligibility.
Experience or time-in grade was maintained as follows: 4 years for Police Officer 1 to be promoted to Police Officer II; 3 years for Police Officer II to be promoted to Police Officer III and Senior Police Officer IV to be promoted to P/Inspector;

The PNP will continue to give recognition to newly-promoted PNP uniformed personnel as it uplifts their morale and strive more to enhance their capabilities and skills to boost the police professionalism standard.
Promoted personnel are expected to perform their best in enforcing the law to protect the public and community from insurgencies.
There will be a simultaneous mass oath taking and pinning of ranks for 1,690 Police Commissioned Officers and 19,227 Police Non-Commissioned Officers from National Headquarters, National Support Units and Police Regional Officers who have met the Standard Qualification for promotions. (PNA) RMA/JCA
