The National Police Commission (Napolcom) has launched the 2019 Search for Model Philippine National Police (PNP) Families.


Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary and Napolcom Chairman Eduardo M. Año said the search aims to strengthen and encourage partnership between the community and the police by highlighting the PNP’s capability as a leader and partner of the community in the maintenance of peace, order, and security for an improved socioeconomic system.

Napolcom Vice-Chairman and Executive Officer Atty. Rogelio T. Casurao said the nationwide search is intended to help the PNP uniformed personnel induce positive change in the community by serving as role models.

“The search aims to highlight the image of the police as a family man or woman and emphasize the importance of having strong family ties that is essential to the overall success of preventing crime in the communities,” Casurao said.

The search is open to all uniformed members of the PNP with legitimate or legally adopted child/children, legally married and living together with his/her spouse for at least five years and has been in the police service for at least five years at the time of the search.

For a Muslim nominee with more than one family, all families will be evaluated.

Candidates may be nominated by members of the local government units (LGUs), non-government organizations (NGOs) or fellow police officers who are not related within third degree of consanguinity and affinity. Nominees from previous years who were not declared winners at the national level may still be nominated.

Nomination forms may be downloaded from the Napolcom website at or from the PNP website at

The deadline for the submission of nominations is on April 26, 2019.

Nomination must be based on community services or volunteer work in their place of residence as well as area of assignment.

“Prior to final evaluation and validation, and for purposes of contestability, the names of qualified regional nominees shall be published in the newspapers of general circulation in their respective regions and posted on the Napolcom and PNP websites where the public may give comments/objections on the nominated PNP families,” Casurao said.
