A TOTAL of 14,046 or 37.96% of the 37,002 examinees hurdled the police examinations conducted by the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) last December 3 and 4, 2022 in 25 designated testing centers nationwide.

The announcement came after the NAPOLCOM En Banc issued Resolution No. 2023-0305, dated April 18, 2023, approving and authorizing the release of the results of the PNP (Philippine National Police) Entrance (PNPE) and Promotional Examinations.

The total number of passers is distributed as follows: 9,768 passers of the PNPE Examination representing 34.60% of the 28,231 PNPE examinees, and the combined 4,278 passers constituting 48.77% of the 8,771 in-service police officers who took the PNP Promotional Examinations.

The 4,278 police officers who successfully passed the promotional examinations per category are broken down as follows: Police Officer 1st Class Examination for Police Major and Police Lieutenant Colonel (39 passers); Police Officer 2nd Class Examination for Police Lieutenant and Police Captain (287 passers); Police Officer 3rd Class Examination for Police Master Sergeant, Police Senior Master Sergeant, Police Chief Master Sergeant and Police Executive Master Sergeant (1,697 passers); and Police Officer 4th Class Examination for Police Corporal and Police Staff Sergeant (2,255 passers).

The eligibility conferred upon passing the PNPE Examination is one of the requirements for appointment in the PNP as a Patrolman/Patrolwoman, while passing the promotional examination is considered appropriate for promotion to a higher rank.

The NAPOLCOM said that its Police Examination System is prepared to detect and address examination anomalies using answer pattern analysis and thereby warns examinees to refrain from committing any form of irregularity, such as cheating, impersonation, perjury, or violation of examination rules – otherwise, they shall be sanctioned with perpetual disqualification from taking future NAPOLCOM examinations.

The list of successful examinees will be posted at the NAPOLCOM One-Stop Shop (NOSS), 7th Floor, NAPOLCOM Central Office located at DILG-NAPOLCOM Center, NAPOLCOM Building, EDSA corner Quezon Avenue, West Triangle, Quezon City and can be viewed at the NAPOLCOM website at

Individual Certificate of Eligibility or Report of Rating will be sent by mail to all examinees. Certification of successful examinees may be issued upon request both at the NAPOLCOM Central and Regional Offices.
