After passing the two-phased Police Executive Service Eligibility (PESE) Examination, 263 Police Lieutenant Colonels (PLTCOL) and Police Colonels (PCOL) will be conferred with the PESE Certificate in the conferment rites to be held on April 27, 2022.
These police officials from all over the country took the PESE Written Examination on October 21, 2022 held in Metro Manila, Cebu City, and Davao City test centers. Out of the 532 examinees, 361 passed. They were joined by 36 passers of previous year’s written examinations to take the Validation Interview at the Napolcom Central Office on February 19, 20, 26 and 27, 2022. From the total of 397 interviewees, only 392 participated in the interview phase. Out of the 392 interviewees, 263 or 67.09 percent successfully passed both the PESE Written Examination and Validation Interview.
The PESE is an eligibility requirement for the third level ranks of Police Colonel, Police Brigadier General, Police Major General, Police Lieutenant General, and Police General. Designed to select the best future leaders in the police service, the PESE, which consists of written examination and panel interview, tests the ability of police officials in answering analytical questions on police leadership and police values.
The PESE Validation Interview is also based on the approved procedural guidelines set by the Napolcom. Police interviewees undergo a thorough assessment by panelists composed of a Napolcom official, a PNP senior official, and a representative from the civil society/academe/national government agency.
As provided under Napolcom Resolution No. 2020-0892, only those who obtained an outstanding rating during the interview phase shall be conferred the PESE Certificate in a formal conferment ceremony.
