The Philippine National Police PNP will soon use Landbank of the Philippines’ (LBP) online payment platform Link.Biz Portal for police clearance fees. PNP chief director general Chief Oscar D. Albayalde and LBP president and CEO Alex V. Buenaventura recently signed of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to finalize details of the deal.
Under the MOU, the PNP will avail of the e-payment channel to accept payments of fees, dues, and charges from police clearance applicants. The Link.Biz Portal will interface with the PNP’s National Police Clearance System (NPCS) website, where applicants can set an appointment and pay for their police clearance applications online.
“Applicants will soon experience hassle-free and secure payment for their police clearance applications. We welcome this new partnership with the PNP as part of our continuing efforts to provide efficient and secure channels for government fee payments,” said Buenaventura.
The new NPCS will undergo at least two months of pilot testing in five identified police stations in the Quezon City Police Department. Gradual implementation will soon follow in 174 police stations.
This payment option will be made available for LANDBANK account holders, but may also be used by applicants maintaining peso accounts with any BancNet-member bank, and those who are using the accredited payment channel G-Cash.
The LANDBANK Link.Biz Portal was piloted in 2017 with the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) for tax payments. Landbank has since expanded the available services, with more partner-agencies now using the Landbank Link.Biz portal as an alternative payment channel for their clients.
The MOU was inked inside Camp Crame, Quezon City in the presence of Landbank senior vice president Leila Martin, PNP PDir for Investigation and Detective Management Elmo Francis Sarona, and other senior officials from Landbank and PNP.
