Camp Sgt Quintin M Merecido, Davao City- Police Regional Office 11 Regional Director, PBGen Marcelo C Morales, assured fellow police officials of fairness in promotion as the selection for the 2nd Semester CY 2019 Regular Promotion Program is now ongoing.
Further, he said that an oversight committee (members of the Promotional Board for PCO and PNCOs) is tasked to study applications for promotion to ensure that those deserved officials will be promoted to the next higher rank.
“They have to undergo rigid process of screening and evaluation to meet the qualification standards such as education, experience, training and eligibility before they are promoted to the next higher rank.” RD Morales added.
Aside from the impressive credentials, a police personnel must have a character as well.
He said, “No matter how good you are, if you are involved in anomalies, in corruption, in abuse of power while you were a Station Commander or head of an office, it’s plus 10 minus 10, so zero ka pa rin. Meaning, hindi lang dapat magaling ka, dapat maayos ka rin.”
For the rank of Police Major, there were twenty-nine (29) Police Captain Applicants.
For the rank of Police Captain, a total of eight (8) Police Lieutenants applied for the said rank vacancies while there were also eight (8) Police Executive Master Sergeants who applied for the rank of Police Lieutenant.
As of now, the DPRM has not yet released the approved quotas for every region to fill-up the vacancies for each rank from Police Commissioned Officers and Non- commissioned officers.
According to PBGen Morales, the PNP is imposing transparency and integrity in the administrative processes to eliminate possible opportunities for unwanted and irregular practices like undue influence, favoritism, fraud and corruption.
Likewise, the observance of promotion is to give honor and recognition to PNP uniformed personnel as well as to uplift the morale of the police force.
Anent to this, the list of candidates for 2nd Semester CY 2019 Regular Promotion for PCOs are already posted on our official social media sites (for Facebook: Pulis Rehiyon Onse II and Police Regional Office 11 FB Page and on the Police Regional Office 11 Website).
