Philippine National Police Chief Police General Benjamin Acorda Jr. revealed on Monday that a total of 43,909 police commissioned officers and police non-commissioned officers across the country’s 17 regions have been promoted to higher ranks in the regular promotion cycle in recognition of their qualifications, performance and merit.

Acorda said that he will personally induct into office a total of 607 police commissioned officers on Monday afternoon who will be appointed into the PNP officer corps as line officers and technical service officers via lateral entry, mostly from the ranks of qualified police non-commissioned officers and some civilians.

“By these human resource actions of promotion and lateral entry appointment, we are recognizing the good performance shown by this personnel and at the same time professionalizing the service by appointing more responsible and qualified personnel and officers to crucial frontline service positions,” Acorda said.

He is also set to extend congratulatory messages from the national leadership to all units and personnel of the PNP for obtaining a truly inspiring expression of public trust and satisfaction in the first quarter of 2023 of Tugon ng Masa Survey by OCTA Research.

The PNP chief stressed that the trust and satisfaction on the PNP expressed by 80 percent of the population is an affirmation of other related public surveys, particularly the opinion of 85 percent of Filipinos that the Philippines is headed in the right direction under the President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. administration.

“To guarantee this commitment, the PNP has an institutionalized disciplinary mechanism in place that administers a judicious system of reward and punishment that is quick in giving due recognition for good performance, yet swift and decisive in imposing stiff sanctions for misconduct and breach of discipline,” said Acorda.
