Camp Ruperto Kangleon, Palo, Leyte – 101 newly-promoted police personnel via Lateral Entry and 53 others took their oath just this morning duly administered by no less than Eastern Visayas Police Director PCSUPT DIONARDO BERNARDO CARLOS during the Mass Oathtaking,Donning and Pinning of Ranks in time with the Monday Flag Raising Ceremony at the PRO8 Grandstand, Camp Kangleon, Palo, Leyte while the other 235 promoted personnel took their oath simultaneously in their respective Provincial/City Police Offices.
Out of 325 who applied for Senior Police Officer 1 up to Police Superintendent, only 288 passed and got promoted. 208 for Senior Police Officer 1; 11 for Senior Police Officer 2; 39 for Senior Police Officer 3; 9 for Senior Police Officer 4; 7 for Police Inspector; 4 for Police Senior Inspector; 3 for Police Chief Inspector; and lastly, 7 for the rank of Police Superintendent.
Meanwhile, out of 252 who submitted the required documents for CY 2018 Lateral Entry for Line Officers, only 101 successful applicants passed and got promoted to Police Inspector. Likewise, 23 promoted Non-Uniformed Personnel took their oath.
Of these numbers of newly promoted PNP personnel, still, PRO8 has not reached its quota. The main reason is that only few have met the necessary qualifications and that some of the applicants failed on the Work Behavior and Performance Appraisal (WBPA) Examinations. Nevertheless, PRO8 is proud to have these new additional Police Commissioned Officers and Senior Non-Commissioned Officers.
“I congratulate you all. Your new ranks mean bigger responsibilities. To the promotees via Lateral Entry, act as officers, act accordingly. Let us continue to do our duties and responsibilities to the public,” RD Carlos said.
