The Philippine National Police (PNP) formally launched today its nameless and faceless recruitment process to eradicate influence-peddling in the organization.
PNP Chief Police General Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar graced the launching of the Comprehensive Online Recruitment Encrypting System (CORES) which will use a QR Code System to ensure the concealment of the identities of the police applicants. 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.
