The processing of the PLTCOL Promotion program shall be done continuously to fill up the required vacancies in the PLTCOL rank. Police Majors who are occupying PLTCOL positions shall be qualified for promotion by virtue of position on top of the other collateral qualification standards in order to ensure the proportionate distribution of said rank.

In case of a tie in the ranking of applicants, the Seniority Lineal List (SLL) shall be used as a governing factor when all the other relevant factors are already considered. The PNP shall submit to the NAPOLCOM a report stating therein the number of applicants processed per rank and the number of promotees per rank.

“There should be transparency in the implementation of procedures and that the Promotion Board must ensure the promotion of the best and most qualified police officers; otherwise, they would be subjected to administrative sanctions,” Aguirre said.
