How to join us Non-Uniformed Personnel in the PNP #CivilianEmployee

What is NUP?

NUP stands for Non-Uniformed Personnel also known as Civilian Employee. In the Philippine National Police (PNP), the NUPs are employees who will take over clerical or any office-based duties currently being carried out by uniformed personnel with police skills and training.

The news civilian recruits would be deployed as crime registrars and radio operators for police regional and provincial offices as well as in municipal and barangay police stations.

With a Philippine population of 92 million, the 150,000-police force still lacks the manpower for the ideal police to population ratio, based on international standards, of one policeman for every 500 people.

To further narrow the gap, the DILG said it will also ask the DBM to approve the hiring of an additional 7,561 NUPs this year. This second batch of NUPs will be assigned at the National Support Units of the PNP, such as the Highway Patrol Group, the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group, and the Maritime Group, the statement said.
