MANILA, Jan. 30 -– To ensure their fitness to enter the police service, the Philippine National Police Health Service has recommended further Physical, Medical and Dental Examination (PMDE) for 118 applicants for the PNP Academy cadetship program this year.

The 118 candidates are among 387 aspirants who earlier underwent Psychological and Psychiatric Examination (PPE) out of the 521 cadet applicants who are qualified to take the PPE.

The PPE evaluates an individual's overall psychological fitness and tolerance to stress, and is a pre-requisite for cadet applicants to further advance to other test parameters required for admission into the PNPA.

The further tests consist of the following: psychological and psychiatric examination; physical/medical/dental exams; drug test; physical fitness test; background investigation, and panel interview.

”These tests are sequential such that an applicant who fails in an earlier stage will not be allowed to proceed to the next stage,” said Chief Supt. Theodore Reuben Sindac.

The complete lists of PPE-qualified applicants are posted in www.pnpa.edu.ph.

The PNP Health Service is currently administering the PMDE on the 118 cadet applicants at the PNP Medical and Dental Dispensary in Camp Crame.

Meanwhile, the Directorate for Intelligence is conducting Complete Background Investigation (CBI) on all applicants as part of the rigid admission process. (PNA)
