NAPOLCOM Vice Chairman and Executive Officer (VCEO) Vitaliano N. Aguirre II said that the PESE Written Examination is open to all qualified uniformed members of the PNP with the rank of Police Lieutenant Colonel (PLTCOL) and up, with permanent status of appointment.

The PESE Written Examination will be held in Quezon City (for applicants from Luzon); in Cebu City (for applicants from Visayas); and in Davao City (for applicants from Mindanao). Application forms and Index cards can be obtained for free at the NAPOLCOM Central Office or at any NAPOLCOM Regional Office nationwide. These forms may also be downloaded at

“The PESE examination has two (2) phases, the Written Examination and the Validation Interview, which both consist of analytical questions on police leadership and police values to test the competence, skills and the mettle of future leaders of the PNP,” Vice Chairman Aguirre said.
