MANILA -- The National Police Commission (Napolcom) has announced the activation of the Online Examination Application Scheduling System (OLEASS) for the conduct of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Entrance and Promotional Examinations on April 28.
In a statement Saturday, Napolcom Vice Chairman Rogelio T. Casurao said the OLEASS will be open starting noontime of Jan. 28 until Feb. 1 for the Entrance Exam; Feb. 4 to 8 for the Police Officer (PO) exam; and Feb. 11 to 15 for Senior Police Officer (SPO), Inspector (INSP) and Superintendent (SUPT) exams through the websites www.napolcom.gov.ph or www.napolcom-oleass.com.
Acceptance of applications shall be on a 'first-come, first-served' basis and, upon due notice, may be stopped even ahead of the deadline.
"Since the April 2018 Napolcom examinations, the Commission has been implementing the enhanced OLEASS which now has features for on-line filling up, submission and printing out of an electronic application form to expedite the processing of exam applications, Casurao said.
Applicants with confirmed schedule shall be sent an auto-generated email informing them to access the on-link and enter all the required information in the application form. Only applicants with printed confirmation letter and filled-out electronic exam application form shall be entertained at the Napolcom Regional Offices during their scheduled appointment date.
The period of filing of application is from February 18 to March 15, 2019.
The OLEASS allows entrance exam applicants to choose the examination center where they want to take the exam regardless of their place of residence.
But for the promotional exam applicants, the examination center is automatically assigned by the computer system based on the home address or unit/assignment address provided by the police applicants.

Police Officers 1 (PO1) whose appointments are temporary for lack of appropriate eligibility are also required to take said entrance exam.
