CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) has intensified its campaign against fake height waivers.
“We want to help the victims of these fake height waivers who aspire to join the police force but were taken advantage by individuals who no less than abuse their innocence on the recruitment process,” NAPOLCOM Regional Director Rodolfo Santos Jr. said as he met with National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) Regional Director Salong Sunggod.
Santos called on the victims to cooperate with the office to determine the source of these documents and put an end to the issue.
He assured them that they would be given due consideration to their re-application in the future.
Moreover, Santos warned those who are already in the police service that submitted fake height waivers and Certificates of Confirmation that they will be appropriately charged for submitting falsified documents.
“We are currently conducting investigation, to include backtracking of documents submitted by applicants with height waivers in the previous recruitment cycles for probable determination of the source and authors of these fake documents,” Santos said.
The move to collaborate with the NCIP was done in time for this year’s recruitment for 1,600 policemen and women in the region.
To date, the Police Regional Office 3 is on its last stage of the First Phase of recruiting 450 policemen and women and has already started the acceptance of application for the Second Phase of recruitment for 1,150 by November./(CLJD-PIA 3)
