PNPA dismisses 2 cadets, 43 others suspended

SILANG, Cavite — The Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) has always been an institution that strives for excellence, discipline, and professionalism.

With a vision to produce the country’s finest law enforcement officers, the academy imposes strict rules and regulations to ensure that every cadet enrolled in its program adheres to its highest standards of excellence.

Despite the institution’s best efforts, some cadets fall short of these standards, leading to dismissal or suspension from the program.

Recently, the PNPA Director, P/Major Gen. Eric E. Noble has signed the dismissal orders of two cadets from their cadetship, one failed in two subjects and the other one failed in one subject and incurred excessive demerits and various reasons.

This after a thorough investigation was conducted in relation to their offenses as charged.

These actions send a clear message that the academy does not tolerate those who were found violative of academy rules and regulations.

Along with the dismissed cadets, 13 others have been suspended (turned back to the next lower class) due to academic challenges.

The academy is renowned for its rigorous academic program, and it’s no secret that cadets are expected to perform at a high level.

The PNPA’s academic standards are up to par with any other institution, and cadets are expected to produce excellent results.

Similarly, 30 cadets have been suspended for non-academic/tactics deficiencies.

While academic performance is essential to success at the PNPA, the academy also prioritizes the formation of a well-rounded officer. Cadets are expected to master tactics, fitness, and self-discipline. Any slip in these areas can put a cadet’s progress at risk. Suspension from the program comes as a corrective measure and offers these cadets a chance for realignment and corrective action.

In all these cases, the PNPA is sending a message – discipline and professionalism are non-negotiable. According to MGen Noble, “Cadets must live up to the academy’s standards to progress through the program.

This high regard for discipline and non-tolerance of bad practices is critical in law enforcement. Law enforcers should be role models in society and we aim to instill these values in our cadets from the start to create good examples in society.” (UnliNews Online)
